Warsaw Lectures in Personality and Social Psychology- Volume 3

Volume 3 of this noteworthy series presents contemporary advances in psychological science that address classic questions about personality dynamics. Twenty-two contributors discuss three challenging themes in personality dynamics: processes of meaning construction, the interplay between personality and the social world, and the embodied nature of the mind.

Several topics, such as personality as a complex system, reciprocal interactions between persons and situations, the interplay of cognitive structures and affective or motivational processes, and the need to study concrete contextualized persons rather than abstract decontextualized variables, cut across the majority of the chapters and lend coherence to the volume as a whole. The book itself is an interacting system of theories and findings intended to spur further advances in the study of personality dynamics.

'This outstanding volume features exciting new developments in the scientific study of personality. It reflects the inevitable interdependencies between epistemic, social and motivational factors that jointly elucidate the fundamental antinomy of human change and stability. A stimulating and inspiring read.' (Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, College Park)
