Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered the founder of cognitive behavioral therapies. The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.

Personality psychology is the study of the person. As such, it is arguably the broadest, most "philosophical", branch of psychology. It involves an examination of the effects of genetics, the physical environment, culture, upbringing, trauma, pathology and more. In as much as this is clearly a huge undertaking, it is as much a matter of competing theories as it is of empirical research. For this reason, it remains a tradition in the field to look at various attempts over the last 100-plus years to tackle the issue: "What is it to be a person?" This book attempts to provide an open-minded review of the most important of these theories.

Personality Theories: A Global View by leading scholar Eric Shiraev takes a dynamic, integrated, and cross-cultural approach to the study of personality. The text is organized around three general questions: Where did personality theories come from? How did the theorists study facts? How do we apply personality theories now? These questions provide a consistent focus on social context, interdisciplinary science, and applications. Going beyond traditional research from the Western tradition, the book also covers theories and studies rooted in the experiences of other countries and cultures.

The author has revised this popular experiential workbook by adding Carl Jung and Karen Horney to his cast of major personality theorists -- Freud, Adler, Erikson, Bandura, Allport, Maslow, and Rogers -- who provide the context within which students explore aspects of their private experience. Through exercises, projects, and group activities, students are given the means to relate abstract theories and concepts to their own personality development and experience. Many exercises deal with private aspects of students' lives and are designed to be completed individually out of the classroom and reviewed by the instructor. Other classroom exercises involve working with peers in small-groups.

It also discusses their application in such fields as abnormal psychology, diagnosis, psychotherapy, education and criminology. The authors find none of the theories completely satisfactory, but pinpoint important successes and suggest a promising new approach.

Designed as a text for both graduate and undergraduate students, this book, originally published in 1995, presents an intrapsychic explanation of human behaviour – concepts based on psychological processes and ‘structures’ within the mind. In this context, a unique treatment of personality theory is introduced. It focuses on Freud, Kelly and Angyal: Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality based on desires, Kelly’s personal construct theory for thinking, and Angyal’s holistic concepts of personality. Each theory is given a detailed analysis in separate chapters. Freud’s psychoanalytic theory is cast as a theory of motivation, Kelly’s personal construct theory as a theory of cognition, and then it is noted that there is no comprehensive theory of personality based on emotion. Although Angyal’s holistic theory is rarely described in modern textbooks, Lester includes this because none of the other holistic theorists rival Angyal in their range of hypothetical constructs or descriptive terms. Then, in sections dealing with alternative viewpoints, the author shows how other personality theorists actually endorse and expand upon the ideas expressed by the aforementioned three, albeit with different terminology. Recognizing the diversity of holistic views in theories of personality, several counterpoint chapters are devoted to the holistic ideas. Lester separates these into three major areas: theorists who have focused on the split in the mind between the real and ideal self; recent theorists who explore the possibility that the mind is a ‘multiplicity of selves’; and theorists who, though not having their viewpoints sufficiently articulated in the literature, are still well established in the history of psychology. Other features include a presentation of the material in modern viewpoints, instead of the precise and perhaps outdated style as written by the individual theorists, and boxed highlights in each section, providing students with practical capsule information for easy reading.
