From the Back Cover:

In this engaging book, Lawrence A. Pervin explores both the classic and more recent issues that define the field of personality psychology. Striking a careful balance between evolutionary and cultural perspectives, Pevin critically examines the issues that aqre the basis of much of the theory and research present in the field today and which are likely to be the basis for advances in the future. He presents an evenhanded coverage of current approaches to personality, and pays particular attention to the public policy implications of different theoretical views.

Some of the fascinating controversies and debates you'll find in this book include:

  • Is Personality Stable Over the Life course?
  • The Nature of Human Nature: Culture and the Search for Universals
  • Mind, Brain, and Behavior: Psychology, Biology, and the Question of Reductionism
  • Is the Concept of the Self Useful and Necessary?
  • The Enterprise of Personality Research: How should it be Conducted?

This reader is an ideal supplement to Pervin's PERSONALITY, 8/E, or any other personality text.
