The Adaptive Self: Personal Contiunity and Intentional Self-Developement
BeschreibungThe concept of the "adaptive self" discussed in this book is a unifying framework for considering the nature of identity and the development of the self throughout the life-span. As the theoretical and empirical studies here show, this concept of self and identity is unique in including both intentional, regulated self-development and flexible responses to an unalterable environment within a single framework of self and identity.
