From Ancient Greece to contemporary times, themes of fate and destiny have served as a central worldview for many. These compelling ideas have guided those in battle, and provided influence and inspirations for politicians, philosophers, and artists. Despite a pervasive concern with fate, we find that an explicit discussion of this construct is absent from psychological theory. Twist of Fate reconciles contemporary psychological research with the ancient and frequently held position of fatalism that was common in that era. The Greek mythological history of the "Moirae" (the triad of goddesses known as the "Fates") offers a unique perspective on human beings by illustrating how fate and destiny influence a variety of behaviors such as drug addiction, spirituality, sexual activity, aggression, and other applied psychological topics. An analysis of the "Moirae" integrates diverse ideas from evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, psychoanalysis, and Nietzsche's philosophy into a fatalistic view of the human personality. The analysis raises the issues of possibilities for personal change, the role of clinical interventions, and what role freedom actually plays in the human experience. Twist of Fate also accounts for recent developments in personality theory and research by shedding new light on findings from evolutionary psychology, narrative theory, and trait psychology. The result is an integrative personality theory that takes the reader from Nietzsche to neuroscience.

Hi, my name is ray; I sit here with pending assault charges and possible murder charges against me. I acted on my own accord and someone is unconscious and unstable. To tell you the truth, I dont care if he lives or dies. If I am guilty then at least I have a roof over my head for the rest of my life. The food is worse than the schools food, unless it is your last meal, then it is better than most 4 star restaurants on the outside. The jail has a gym that consists of a basketball court and weights. There is a baseball field and a track outside, just in case I want to exercise my body. The only bad thing is that they are only open from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. everyday. It is kind of like having something that someone else wants and tormenting him or her with it and keeping it anyway. If I decided to exercise my mind, there is a library. This Library has both Apple and IBM computers. I can even take college-level courses as part of my rehab. In a small way this place kind of reminds me of the orphanage.

As a flyer with the French Air Service during World War I, Louisiana Cajun Quentin Norvell has become a tough fighter pilot in the days before America's entry into the war. When he is badly wounded, he chooses to feign death to stave off further attack instead of jumping from the cockpit to his death-a decision that will have far-reaching consequences for his future state of mind. He crash lands, but survives. While recuperating in a French hospital, Quentin struggles to heal. But even though his body starts to mend, his emotions are open and raw. He sees his actions in the sky as cowardice and resolves to become a focused and deadly killer in the sky. Then the unthinkable happens.
