Overview


"Theories of Personality" surveys the field, presenting major theorists who represent the psychoanalytic, neopsychoanalytic, life-span, trait, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, and social-learning approaches, as well as clinical and experimental work. Where warranted, the authors show how the development of certain theories was influenced by events in a theorist's personal and professional life. This thoroughly revised Sixth Edition now incorporates more examples, tables, and figures to help bring the material to life for students and has a more visually exciting, two-color look. The new content in this edition reflects the dynamism in the field. The text also now explores how race, gender, and culture issues figure in the study of personality and in personality assessment. Also new to this edition is a final integrative chapter that looks at the study of personality theories and suggests conclusions that can be drawn from the theorists' work.
