Overview

Kurt Lewin was one of the most influential social scientists of the twentieth century, and the impact of his work shows no sign of waning. In fact, today's scholars increasingly cite his groundbreaking work and his lifelong goal to use the findings of science to ameliorate social problems. Yet despite his lasting influence, Lewin's original works have been very difficult to find—until now.

A companion volume to APA's recent reissue of Lewin's Resolving Social Conflicts and Field Theory in Social Science (1998), this new collection includes additional selections from Lewin's most important early work and makes available fifteen out-of-print articles, including two that are available for the first time in English translations. This volume also includes an intellectual biography of Lewin's work and commentaries on his writings. This edition represents a major contribution to America's intellectual tradition and reflects the extraordinary range of Lewin's talent.
