About this title


Designed to guide students toward an understanding of personality theories, Ryckman's new edition offers a consistent organization that helps students compare, contrast, and critically evaluate 16 major theories in personality psychology. ..Ryckman uses a theory-by-theory approach to help students develop the skills they need to critically evaluate theories. Ryckman first defines personality, provides basic information about the scientific process and the interrelatedness of theory and research, and describes the criteria scientists use in judging a theory. Then, chapter by chapter, he introduces each major theoretical position with an objective overview of the theorists' basic concepts and principles. A completely rewritten final chapter reviews the current status of the theories and their many contributions to our understanding of human personality. It also highlights the heuristic value of the theories, noting the many ways in which they act as stimulants to the thinking and research efforts of personality psychologists. Ryckman finishes by presenting information about the future prospects of the discipline.
