Summary: This work offers socialization theory with supporting empirical evidence and a logical proof the first step towards a general theory of social psychology. The theory answers a number of lingering questions in the field, ranging from why do good people do evil things? (by presenting an identity shift effect explanation) to where does self-esteem come from? (by showing how different self-esteem theories are actually identical). The work proposes that unification of Festingers foundational theories of dissonance and social comparison (termed internal conflict and external conflict) is essential for a true comprehension of human social behavior and how to attain emotional well-being. The work offers a shame hypothesis of depression and in the afterword, an explanation of what self-actualization/self-realization/god-realization (termed realizing self-acceptance) really is. Although the book is geared towards academics/scientists in social psychology, it is likely to be of interest to the general public (e.g., people interested in self-help, psychology, spirituality, self-growth, or philosophy), for it offers answers to fundamental questions of human nature, and in offering these answers, constitutes a potential bridging of science and spirituality. In the afterword, the logical implications of the theory are exploredimplications which point to what spirituality really is, what function it and religion really serve, and why spirituality is psychologically useful. The afterword shows that if the theory is proven to be true by science, then the tenets of spiritual belief are true, as well. 1. Social psychology 2. Good and evil--Psychological aspects 3.
