Theories of Personality
This accurate and authoritative book presents leading theorists of pesonality in a thorough, interesting and logical manner. It begins with an introductory chapter designed to acquaint students with the meaning of personality and provide them with a solid foundation for understanding the nature of theory and its crucial contributions to science. The next 17 chapters present 23 major theories with a fresh approach and a more complex view encompassing a biographical sketch of each theorist, related research and applications to real life. When appropriate, the authors point out ways in which the theorist's life experiences may have helped shape her or his theory.
