Discussion Prompt: Developmental Perspective

Your text discusses the operational reality of development and personality, but does little to address why? The evolutionary perspective would have us simply accept development as a process that has developed over millions of years – but what reason is there for development? What is the goal of development? Why develop personality at all? Why grow old? Why fear death? What do you think? Is there a teleology of development (you may have to look teleology up)?

You MUST include an in-text citation and reference in your original discussion post that relates to the prompt but is not provided by the prompt.
