Example text

However, insofar as levels of research differ in fundamental ways, this can never be the case. Thus, the current state of developmental psychology also may be viewed as reflecting a fusion of research levels in which work at one level is taken as work at other levels. Given the potential problems of autonomy and fusion, it seems possible that research may proceed more effectively if explicit consideration is given to work at all levels and, most significantly, to work that attempts to integrate across levels.

For example, psychoanalytic approaches emphasize tensions between the id, ego, and superego (Silberman, 1981). Piaget (1971) adopted the equilibration terminology as an explanatory principle in development, following traditions in the social and biological sciences that can be traced to Herbert Spencer (Bailey, 1984). Janet (1926) placed tension at the center of his action-oriented theory of psychological functioning, although he was not influenced by the concept of equilibrium. From this perspective, tension refers to a synthesizing element in mental life and behavior (Sjovall, 1967).

In this tradition, Kohn and Schooler (1983) link specific working conditions with both occupational and parental socialization values. Coleman's (1988) con- 39 Developmental Concepts across Disciplines ceptualization of social capital represents another approach to social structure and is defined in explicitly developmental terms: the relational ties with other people that facilitate development. Coleman has studied the creation of human capital (typically an economic approach to human development), especially with respect to intergenerational relationships (Coleman, 1988) and the ability of public ties to compensate for a lack of family ties (Coleman, 1991).
