Nature, Nurture, and Psychology
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Behavioral genetic research in psychology has accelerated dramatically in the last ten years, yielding critical discoveries about the origins of individual differences. Nature, Nurture, and Psychology offers a past and present overview 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 gap between nature and nurture and propose new theories that encompass both concepts. The volume reveals why nature and nurture are increasingly being viewed as interactive rather than discrete agents of change.
