Teaching Developmental Psychology as a Theoretical and Philosophical Psychologist

I am currently teaching a childhood developmental psychology course using the textbook Theories of Developmental Psychology (5th ed.) by Patricia H. Miller. This text is unique in that the author takes a theoretical, rather than a categorical (i.e., biological, cognitive, social, etc. development) or chronological (i.e., prenatal to adolescent development), approach to explicating the foundations of and current research trends in developmental psychology. The author’s approach is commendable for giving preference to theory, which often appears to be displaced by method. This might be a useful book for theoretical and philosophical psychologists who instruct developmental psychology course
