The Foundations of Personality by Abraham Myerson is one of the most comprehensive examinations of the neurological and psychological influences upon character of its era. Myerson is a medical professional and speaks from a background of years of practical experience in the field, yet he approaches the subject of psychology with a natural balance which allows him to remain on solid ground when so many of his contemporaries were chasing theoretical fancies.
This work takes into account valuable discoveries from both Freudian and behavioral psychology, combining them into one of the landmark works of cognitive theory.
To provide a fuller understanding of the material, the biography and background information of the author is provided in a summary preceding the narration of the text.
This summary also includes a review by chapter of the work, a synopsis and analysis, and an exploration of the historical context and social impact of the work.
Suitable for students, practitioners, and anyone with an interest in the field of psychology, this is the most comprehensive narration of text and background material on Myerson's Foundations of Personality ever compiled.
I was expected a more balanced point of view. Also, I was annoyed by the judgmental tone in which it was written.
