Genetics and experience: the interplay between nature and nurture
How much of a role do our genes play in our responses to events in our environment? This volume explores this question by examining nature and nurture in terms of their interplay in the development of individual differences.
Beginning with a discussion of how contemporary research and theory in genetics and in the environment are evolving towards each other, Plomin explores such topics as genetic contributions to environmental measures both within and outside the family, such as friends and life events. The book concludes with a theory of the genetics of experience.
