From a review . . .

“[S]ets the bar very high in seeking to integrate domains that are divergent, not only in terms of their content . . . but also in terms of their preferred methodologies, which frequently appear to be antithetical . . . . Although the lofty aim of integration is ultimately unrealized, at the end of the book the reader is left with a newfound impression that it is, quite possibly, realizable.”
K. V. Petrides in Personality and Individual Differences
