Revisiting classic studies simultaneously delivers an essential grounding in the history of personality research, as well as critical perspectives from contributors at the forefront of the field. As a comprehensive update on ground-breaking works in the field of personality psychology, the volume is an indispensable addition to the cumulative science of personality psychology and psychology generally. Simon Boag, Macquarie University.
This is really a great book and very timely for reconsolidation of studies in Psychology of Individual Differences. I have been teaching the topic for 20 years and witness many changes in the trend of teaching the topic. It is about the time revist what we learn from this area of psychology over almost a century. I congratulate Carr for bringing many specialist together to complete the task. I will most certainly recommend this book in my reading list for more able and curious students which most are.
Anyone with an interest in personality psychology will find this book thoroughly engaging. The discussion of each classic study takes the reader on a journey of history, detail and insight that goes well beyond the typical Introduction to Personality Psychology text.
This textbook is a valuable and interesting addition to the psychologist students’ arsenal. Philip Corr has chosen a selection of 14 studies that are pivotal within the field, either in terms of theory development, or research direction, and provides context for the studies but also an opportunity for critique and reflection on their contribution. This book will allow students, and teachers alike, to critically evaluate some of the classics in personality and individual differences as well as open up other avenues for further reading and research.
Structured around classic papers and significant milestones, the authors provide a novel yet logical account of the history of personality research. Spanning theoretical, methodological, and philosophical debates, the book is an ideal companion for any student or teacher looking to adopt a critical stance towards the field.
