About this product
- DescriptionWe have seen these children - the shy and the sociable, the cautious and the daring - and wondered what makes one avoid new experience and ather avidly pursue it. At the crux of the issue surrounding the contribution of nature to development is the study that Jerome Kagan and his colleagues have been conducting for more than two decades. In The Long Shadow of Temperament , Kagan and Nancy Snidman summarize the results of this unique inquiry into human temperaments, one of the best-kwn longitudinal studies in developmental psychology. These results reveal how deeply certain fundamental temperamental biases can be preserved over development.
- Author BiographyJerome Kagan is Daniel and Amy Starch Professor of Psychology at Harvard University and the author of many books, including Three Seductive Ideas (Harvard). Nancy Snidman is Lecturer in the Department of Psychology and Director of the Infant Laboratory at Harvard.
