Summary Life span human development is about the development of human beings - from conception to death. It highlights similarities as well as differences in developmental stages, and it asks fundamental questions about why humans develop as we do. Taking an integrated topical and chronological approach, each chapter focuses on a topic or domain of development - such as physical growth, cognition or personality - and traces developmental trends and influences in that domain from infancy to old age
