This book, the fourth volume of the Hall Series, includes the five lectures originally presented at the 1983 meeting of the APA [American Psychological Association] in Anaheim, California. The distinguished authors and their topics are Russell G. Geen, motivation; Sandra Scarr, intelligence; Nancy K. Schlossberg, adult development; Michael Wertheimer, history; and Gordon Wood, research methodology. /// All five authors cover the most recent literature on their topics, either examining a few trends in detail or surveying a topic broadly. Several of the authors offer recommendations for classroom activities and demonstrations. Although the topics of the five papers in this volume differ, the papers have much in common. They are all integrative accounts of relevant literature that places each topic in the context of an introductory [psychology] course, a context that limits what can be taught.
