Nature v. Nurture: The Great Debate

In 1930 John Watson argued : “Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I’ll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select — doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant-chief and, yes, even beggar-man and thief, regardless of his talents, penchants”

The debate of nature versus nurture has long persisted amongst researchers and theorist in the Western world. In small groups, draft an argumentative essay that:

1) deliberates on the validity of Watson’s statement

2) establishes a position in the nature versus nurture debate

3) discusses human growth and development with a focus on the consequences of events during infancy and toddlerhood

4) Incorporates evidence from your group’s research area.
