Summary
[This book] offers a past and present view of nature-nurture research and identifies directions for the future of this emerging field. /// Top investigators summarize current findings in the most promising research domains: cognitive abilities and disabilities, the development of personality and temperament, and psychopathology. Leading environmentalists and behavioral geneticists explore the relationship between nature and nurture and propose new theories that encompass both concepts. The volume reveals why nature as well as nurture is playing an increasingly important role in research and theory in psychology. /// 'Nature, Nurture, and Psychology" is an indispensible work for anyone interested in the genetic and environmental origins of individual differences in psychology.
