Adult Development

Contents: Supplemental Material


Adult development has not only fascinated scientists and educators, but it has sparked the imagination of artists and poets as well. From the field of fine art, the Gallery shows images of human development, including Robert Smirke's 1801 series, interpreting Shakespeare's Seven Stages of Man. The timeline (see below) also has images of the stages of development across time and cultures.

Under the Timelines tab, there are two timelines I created outside of this website. One looks at representations of the stages of development since antiquity and the other places the theorists discussed herein in their places in time. Both include additional information and links to related videos, resources, downloads and websites.

I have also included a couple of videos (about 4 minutes each) about Erikson's Stages of Development and Kohlberg's Moral Development Theory.
