Developmental Psychobiology: The Significance of Infancy

By Lewis P. Lipsitt | Go to book overview

us about the causes of developmental canalization in human behaviors with evolutionary significance ( Thiessen, 1972). Presently, however, we must test our determinant models with evidence on sources of variation. Let us restrict our claims to empirically appropriate, modest ones that reflect our profound ignorance about the causes of development.
