This volume constitutes the first book-length study of the human phenomenon of hesitation. Though he places special emphasis on the disciplines of psychology and the social sciences, Doob examines views from such diverse fields as physiology and philosophy, and seeks to determine when and why human beings are impulsive or reflective. The effects of the central nervous system, culture and society, personality development, and the influence of others are all analyzed, and techniques that can be employed to modify hesitation are discussed.
