Summary

The purpose of this paper is to provide a formal three-step explication of a question that has been traditionally viewed as fundamental to developmental theory construction and explanation: Is behavioral development continous or discontinuous, or is it both? First, a preliminary structural definition of behavioral development involving a certain domain of elementary phenomena ("behavioral events in living systems") and a certain elementary relation ("precedes in time") is presented and rationalized. Second, formal models derived from the continuous connected straight line of classical mathematics are constructed for each of the following assertations: (1) Behavioral development is continuous. (2) Behavioral development is discontinuous. (3) Behavioral development is partially discontinuous. Third, the differences between the respective formal models are summarized. It is shown that each of the three models can be applied to any narrowly defined behavioral content area whatsoever and that, taken together, the models entail a new empirical approach to the old question of whether or not behavioral development in this or that content area is continuous.
