Authors: Nicole S. Porter, Nancy Bothne and Leonard Jason (DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois) 
Book Description:
This book addresses manifestations and consequences of the concept of the Self from Nativism. Taking an historical perspective, an attempt is made to offer a dynamic systems perspective, and to describe an alternative utilizing examples from: Social Darwinism, genetics, fetal development, brain plasticity, and the education system, to the international human rights movement. Doing this the authors call into question the goal of respecting all values and behaviors in a given society. Arguing against moral relativism the authors propose the necessity for foundational values - that arguably already govern Community Psychology.
