9780122451508: Introduction to Theories of Personality

In this highly readable fifth edition of his proven text, Robert Ewen presents the ideas of the most important personality theorists, describes new research relevant to them, and provides a new case history section. Intended as an introduction to personality theory, the book's major goals are:

* to stimulate enthusiasm for the provocative problems of personality,
* to provide a solid foundation for further study, and

* to promote interest in the primary sources on which this secondary one is based.

A prologue introduces each of the five major sections of the text, and comparisons are made among the various theories where appropriate. Other special features include: integration of numerous first-hand quotations into the text, capsule summaries of important concepts throughout to help students learn the many definitions presented in each chapter, and introductions to such theoretical applications as dream interpretation, psychopathology, psychotherapy, work, religion, education, and literature.

Individual chapter study questions are designed to stimulate thought, discussion, and debate; and appendices offer case histories plus practical and personal examples to illustrate and clarify the study questions.
