Warsaw Lectures in Personality and Social Psychology- Volume 1

This series grows out of the Biennial Symposia on Personality and Social Psychology (BSPSP;http://www.bspsp.edu.pl), which are intended to become a regular forum for psychologists and representatives of allied disciplines. The goal of BSPSP is to understand and analyze the integrative approach to studying human psychology. The growing achievements of psychology allow us to conceptualize, measure, and influence complex behavior. Research has become more specialized, resulting in difficulties in communication and collaboration. BSPSP is an important forum for cross-disciplinary discussions concerning important aspects of the human brain and mind.

Index



'[T]his book offers a good mix of philosophical chapters on the biology of personality and some interesting chapters on intra- and inter-individual differences in some classic social psychological constructs.' (Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Personality and Individual Differences)



'Novel ideas that interface the fields of neuroscience, neuropsychology, and cognitive science with the traditional areas of personality theory and assessment. Groundbreaking and engaging. This volume will be of value to scientists and practitioners interested in broadening their paradigms for understanding personality, mind, and brain.' (Antonio E. Puente, University of North Carolina-Wilmington)
