Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 231–232. Reviews the book, Field Dependence-Independence: Cognitive Style Across the Life Span edited by Seymour Wapner and Jack Demick (1991). The chapters here derive from the Herman A.

Authors examine, among other topics, cognitive style and personal design in human development, wake-sleep and psychological differentiation from intrauterine to postnatal life, psychophysiological and brain lateralization studies in field dependence-independence, field dependence-independence and embedded figures performance, adult development and aging, cultural variations in field dependence-independence, the cognitive style construct, and open research problems on field dependence-independence.
