Description

About the Book :

Filled with updated research and findings, Schultz and Schultz's THEORIES OF PERSONALITY, 10E, gives students a clear and cogent introduction to this dynamic field. Organized by theory, this popular text discusses major theorists who represent psychoanalytic, neopsychoanalytic, lifespan, trait, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, and social-learning approaches, while demonstrating the influence of events in theorists' personal and professional lives on the development of these theories. The book also explores the ways in which race, gender, and cultural issues play a part in the study of personality and in personality assessment, and include numerous examples, tables, and figures that further enhance students' understanding of the content. The final chapter integrates topics explored in previous chapters and suggests conclusions that can be drawn from the many theorists' work.

"Questions About Human Nature" sections examine six fundamental issues: free will vs. determinism, nature vs. nurture, the importance of childhood experiences, uniqueness vs. universality, goals, and optimism vs. pessimism. These sections, which appear in each chapter that discusses a specific theorist, are accompanied by a bar graph that helps students to compare each theorist''s perspective on these issues.
Chapter outlines, chapter summaries, critical-thinking review questions, key terms, a marginal glossary, a full glossary, a complete reference list, and annotated reading lists help students master the material.
Chapter 15 reviews the major factors that have emerged from the study of personality theories. It also suggests conclusions, related to conscious and unconscious influences (such as genetics, the environment, learning, parental influences, developmental aspects), that students may draw from their study and analysis of the material discussed in the preceding chapters.
