The Person and the Situation: Perspectives of Social Psychology

What is so special about The Person and the Situation? You will, in short order, discover the answer to that yourself. This is an ambitious book. It might be, in fact, one of the most ambitious books that you will ever read. That is the first of its many virtues. It offers a way of re-ordering ordinary experience. It argues that when we perceive the actions and intentions of others, we tend to make mistakes.

We see things that aren’t there and we make predictions that we ought not to make: we privilege the “person” and we discount the influence of the “situation.” It speaks, in short, to the very broadest questions of human perception.
