A History of Developmental Psychology in Autobiography

By Dennis Thompson; John D. Hogano | Go to book overview

heredity were based largely on Mendelian and Darwinian theories and gross family studies and class descriptions. In 1990, more sophisticated microscopic studies of brain/neurology structure and human psychology suggest there is an organic/structural basis for behavior. In 1930, environmental influences were measured only by very gross classifications (for instance, occupational title or educational level). In 1990, environmental influences are described by the nature of adult or peer relations with the subject.

Did I enjoy my life as psychologist/educator? Yes, very much. Would I choose it again? If these were the 1930s -- yes. If the choice is for the 1990s, I am not so sure. It would be tempting to opt for research in either the neurological/psychological basis of behavior or in the details of environmental impact that result in behavior. What were the influences that guided my career? Chance, opportunity, or choice? I leave it to the reader to identify them.
