Social Psychology and Human Nature, 3rd Edition (with B.J. Bushman)

Social Psychology and Human Nature, 3rd Edition, offers a remarkably fresh and compelling exploration of the fascinating field of social psychology. Respected researchers, teachers, and authors Roy Baumeister and Brad Bushman give students integrated and accessible insight into the ways that nature, the social environment, and culture interact to influence social behavior. While giving essential insight to the power of situations, the text's contemporary approach also emphasizes the role of human nature—viewing people as highly complex, exquisitely designed, and variously inclined cultural animals who respond to myriad situations.

With strong visual appeal, an engaging writing style, and the best of classic and current research, Social Psychology and Human Nature, 3rd Edition helps students make sense of the sometimes baffling—but always interesting—diversity of human behavior.

The intention is to provide a broad resource that can be used by both beginners and experts worldwide who wish to have strong, useful access to the classic contributions to this area of study in one place. The field of ‘Self’ is particularly difficult to gain entry to, particularly because it has such a rich and varied history. The two editors are both well-versed in the study of ‘Self’ and thus well-qualified to provide a map of articles that have lasting importance and influence.
