The Psychology of Sex Differences
Eleanor Emmons Maccoby (born 1917) is a psychologist who was also a professor at Stanford University. She and coauthor Carol Nagy Jacklin wrote in the Preface to this 1974 book, "In this book we have assembled a large body of evidence concerning how the sexes differ, and how they do not differ, in many aspects of psychological functioning... Our objective is to sift the evidence to determine which of the many beliefs about sex differences have a solid basis in fact and which do not. In addition, we discuss the major theories of how psychological sex differentiation comes about." (Pg. vii) They add, "we have proceeded on the assumption that before we can attempt to understand the 'why' and 'how' of psychological sex differentiation, we must have as accurate and detailed a knowledge as possible concerning the nature of existing differences and the changes these differences undergo at successive ages." (Pg. 1) They further add, "In a sense, this book is dedicated to testing the ... hypothesis that ... assigning cases to groups by sex is no more meaningful, for purposes of understanding the behavior of the subjects, than assigning them at random."Keywords: PSYCHOLOGY
