Social-Cognitive Development

Show Summary Details


This chapter considers developments in the fields of social development and cognitive development. It details how the two fields went from being deeply intertwined to going their separate ways in the 1970s and 1980s, and then reuniting once again in the last few years. It further claims that a reinassance is afoot and explains how this came about. This book heralds that reunion and celebrates the renaissance, showing for example, how using the concepts and methods of cognitive development researchers are now making contact with the deep concerns of social development researchers to create new questions, new methods, and new answers.
