A modular, manageable, meaningful survey of the life span
Discovering the Life Span provides a broad overview of a human life, from the moment of conception through death. Utilizing a flexible, modular organization, author Robert Feldman covers the life span chronologically and focuses on physical, cognitive, and social and personality development within each stage of life. Feldman’s engaging and accessible writing style makes the material meaningful to students, and prepares them to apply what they’re learning about development to their personal and future professional lives. The 5th Edition more prominently highlights the impact of culture on development and places more emphasis on the application of multiple perspectives when studying development.
