In this section the theories of Perry, Erikson, Kegan, Parks, as well as Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger and Tarule are compared and contrasted. The significant ideas of each theorist on the stages of human development are analyzed and assessed in terms of their underlying assumptions about meaning making and the internal motivation to learn. The strategy that guided this examination focuses on the process of learning and its relation to the stages of development from infancy through adulthood.
