生活史理論のヒト発達への拡張 : 個人差とその発達に対する新たな視点生活史理論のヒト発達への拡張 : 個人差とその発達に対する新たな視点AN10516641 The review of application of Life History Theory to human developmental research : A new perspective on individual differences and its development
A group of developmental psychologists have applied “Life-history Theories” to human developmental research. Life-history theories explain animal development and its ecology from biological perspective. In this paper, we briefly introduce the “Life-history Theories” in general, and then review recent progress in how “Life-history Theories” have been applied to and contributed to research in the field of developmental psychology. Through this paper, we propose the significance of applying evolutional perspective to developmental psychology and also discuss limitations about it.
