Hutchison uses her multidimensional framework (person, environment, and time) as a way to effectively organize human behavior theory course material in a meaningful way for students. Thoroughly updated to reflect recent developments in the field, the book provides a comprehensive and readable global perspective on the person and environment construct, weaving powerful case studies with recent innovations in theory and research. The book identifies multiple dimensions of both person and environment and draws on ongoing scientific inquiry, both conceptual and empirical, to examine their dynamic interaction in the production of human behavior.
