Therefore, each perspective that claimed to discover the determinants of human behaviour were subsequently found to have serious limitations and replaced... EXPLAINING CHILDREN’S...

While no single theorist has been able to satisfactorily trace the origin of our thoughts, actions, feelings and instincts, several have made noteworthy contributions. To understand whether we only do what we want to do, one needs to first define the concept of 'want to do'.
