Personality Theory: A Biosocial Approach

Written by: Dr. C. George Boeree (Shippensburg University)

Like so much in the field of psychology, there are a number of different theories and no established single answer to most things. Dr. C. George Boeree, professor emeritus the Psychology Department at Shippensburg University, presents the topic of personality theory in terms of issues rather than theories. His goal in writing the book is to help students explore each of the theories and “formulate your own best understanding of what it means to be a person.”
