This volume is the outcome of a symposium at Wik’s Castle, Sweden, in May 1997 where leading researchers, mostly within developmental psychology, came together to discuss in depth the implications of the emerging developmental science and the holistic approach. A wealth of material was presented, discussing various aspects of the suggested new paradigmtheoretical, methodological, as well as empirical. Rather than trying to summarize this diversified and rich tapestry of thoughts and results we want to pick up a few important ideas that have profound implications for the future direction of the study of individual development.
