Overview

Illuminating important advances in the study of personality since the publication of this classic Handbook in 1990, the fully revised second edition now ushers the field into the 21st century. From foremost authorities, new and updated chapters provide a historical overview of modern personality theory, bring major theoretical perspectives into focus, and report on the current state of the science in a range of key domains. Documenting the ongoing evolution of psychoanalytic, trait, social cognitive, and interactional approaches, the volume explores the dynamic interface between personality psychology and other disciplines. In particular, the recent explosion of knowledge about biological aspects of personality is reflected in completely new chapters on evolutionary psychology, behavioral genetics, neuroscience, and temperament. Major new research is also presented on such defining topics as the self; the psychological unconscious; motivational processes; emotion and emotion regulation; stress, coping, and health; interpersonal behavior; personality assessment; and more.
