About the book:

This text is designed both to explain the major personality theories and to stimulate critical thinking about them. Each chapter focuses on one theory or group of theories, providing brief biographies that shed light on how the theories were formed. Engler also provides criteria for evaluating each theory and cites current research pertaining to that theory. All in all, the sixth edition focuses on making the text even more accessible with new and revised pedagogical features. Highlights of this sixth edition: * New! "Thinking Critically" boxes, which provide students with a clearer context for critical thinking * Updated! "Philosophical Assumption" boxes now give students more structure and guidance in analysing theorists' philosophical views * Updated! All content has been updated to reflect the status of current research on the theorists * Unique final chapter on Zen Buddhism adds significant cross-cultural understanding of personality theory
