About this item

Personality Theories: A Global View is organized around three general questions about personality theories: Where did they come from? How did they study facts? How do we apply them now? These three organizing questions provide a consistent focus throughout the book on social context, interdisciplinary science, and applications. Shiraev speaks directly to today's students by emphasizing three key levels of experience: global, local, and individual.

Coverage of classical and contemporary systems of thought is both chronological and comprehensive. Most theories are presented as "products" of their own time shaped by the unique social circumstances surrounding them. At the same time, these theories were making an instant and often lasting impact on other theories developed later, which are traced throughout the book's chapters. Each chapter begins with a short opening case followed basic facts and key developments related to the chapter's theme. After that, the chapter presents main theoretical approaches to analyze these facts and developments. Finally, the chapter demonstrates how these approaches work together, showing how the student can apply them in various contexts.

A rich pedadogical program, a book-specific website with additional resources for students, and carefully developed support materials for instructors complete the package for this innovative new global approach to personality theories.
