'This superb collection of essays builds a bridge from the great developmental theories of the past to the new insights and methods shaping the developmental science of today. It is no accident that the volume is framed as a tribute to Willis Overton, who has long modeled theoretical wisdom for the field. The volume belongs on the bookshelf of all scholars interested in the future of developmental science.' -William Damon, Stanford University
'Willis Overton’s metatheoretical contributions provided scientists with a new lens for viewing development, one that shifts attention away from reductionist splits of nature vs nurture to approaches marked by holism, process, and relational analyses. This volume is essential reading for students of developmental science seeking to understand how these ideas motivated thinking across a wide range of topics, from the nature of development, gender, health, to resilience in adolescence.' - Carol Martin, Arizona State University
