Abstract and Keywords

In this concluding chapter of the second edition of the Handbook of Personality and Social Psychology reflects on how the contributions to the handbook illustrate the ways in which personality and social psychology relate to and contribute to each other. As in the first edition, three patterns of relationship between the two approaches are considered: bridges (joining distinct social and personality perspectives on a substantive area), combined territories (with relatively seamless mergers between fields), and ravines (where the distance between fields has been substantial but where developmental opportunities exist). Also assessed are areas of change in these patterns of relationship; evidence of increasing integration between personality and social psychology approaches is indicated. Finally, as in the first edition, the roles played by professional associations, scientific journals and edited collections, departmental structures, funding agencies, and educational and training programs are considered as they facilitate or inhibit integrative work.

Keywords: integrative perspectives, bridges, combined territories, ravines, professional associations, scientific journals, departmental structures, funding agencies, educational programs
