What is the nature of the 'self', how do everyday experiences shape it, and how does it influence our thinking, judgements and behaviors? Such questions constitute enduring puzzles in psychology, and are also of critical practical importance for applied domains such as clinical, counseling, educational and organizational psychology. In this book a select group of eminent international researchers survey the most recent advances in research of the self. In particular, they discuss the influence of cognitive and intra-psychic processes (Part 1), interpersonal and relational variables (Part 2), and inter-group phenomena on the self (Part 3).

MEDIA REVIEWS
""This volume not only contains a collection of outstanding papers on the self by world-renowned experts, but it also presents a unified message about the importance of integrating the different levels in which the self functions. Interrelations among the individual self, the interpersonal self, and the collective self are examined conceptually and empirically. Those of us who are fascinated with how the self is constructed, maintained, and impact our everyday lives will find this volume enlightening and "must" reading. Because the issues addressed in this volume are so central to the interface between self-regulation and social regulation, the appeal and significance of this volume is even broader. All those interested in the social foundations of motivation will find this book highly rewarding up.."
-Tory Higgins, Columbia University
"This collection showcases a fine array of recent social psychological research on the self. The focus here is explicitly social-examining self as a feature of the person's mind that is the hub of social relationships, a natural psychological link to specific others, to groups, and to social life. The volume reveals that the current study of the social self is vigorous and wide-ranging..""
-Daniel Wegner, Harvard University
