Book Description

31 Oct 1985
The relation between individual and collective processes is central to the social sciences, yet difficult to conceptualize because of the necessity of crossing disciplinary boundaries. The result is that researchers in different disciplines construct their own implicit, and often unsatisfactory, models of either individual or collective phenomena, which in turn influence their theoretical and empirical work. In this 1985 book, Drew Westen attempts to cross these boundaries, proposing an interdisciplinary approach to personality, to culture, and to the relation between the two. Throughout the book, Westen provides reviews of a variety of fields, including personality theory, moral development, ego development, and culture theory. His book will appeal to students and scholars in all the social sciences, as well as to any reader concerned with understanding the relation between individuals and the world in which they live.

Product Description

Review

'Based on an admirably thorough exposition of modern thought and research in the psychological and social sciences, Drew Westen presents here a brilliant, intellectually exhilarating effort to transcend, by means of a new theoretical formulation, the artificial divisions in our knowledge about individuals and about cultures.' Marie Jahoda, University of Sussex

'This is a notable attempt to integrate contemporary personality theory and contemporary theories in anthropology around the concept of psychological need. It is an impressive overview of a psychocultural approach to social theory that takes into account usually neglected psychological variables. A cogent and compelling work, it will provoke thought and response in its readers.' Professor George DeVos, University of California, Berkeley

First Sentence
IN AN ARTICLE on contemporary personality psychology in a recent edition of the Annual Review of Psychology, Ravenna Helson and Valory Mitchell note: Personality psychology has sometimes been seen as the domain of a little group of rational technicians who specialize in criticizing each other's measure of the insignificant, then conclude that the existence of the obvious is doubtful, then doubt whether the study of personality is worthwhile. Read the first page
