Edited by Michel Ferrari, PhD, University of Pittsburgh Robert J. Sternberg, PhD, Yale University This integrative volume brings together leading social scientists to present diverse perspectives on the emergence, development, and practical role of self-awareness. Shedding light on the fundamental question of how human beings come to understand who we are--in relation to ourselves, to others, and to the broader world--the book does justice to the complexity of its subject while remaining accessible to readers in a wide range of disciplines. Chapters cover such topics as developmental and evolutionary aspects of self-awareness: the self, consciousness, and theory of mind: and connections between self-awareness and social, affective, academic, and neuropsychological functioning.

"An excellent introduction to the burgeoning field of research on the development of the self. Bringing together leaders in philosophy, comparative psychology, and developmental psychology, and carefully sequencing their contributions, the editors provide a fascinating road map to the complexities of self-awareness, its development, and its centrality in any discussion about human nature itself." -- Michael Cole, PhD, Communication Department and Laboratory of Comparative Human Cognition, University of California, La Jolla
