&Quot;...brilliant..."-- Malcolm Gladwell , Author of Blink. Tomkins's magnum opus, Affect Imagery Consciousness , was published by Springer Publishing Company in four volumes over 30 years. When Tomkins began writing the book in the 1950's, American psychology was dominated by psychoanalytic and behaviorist theories--neither of which placed much importance on the role of basic emotions in everyday human behavior. Tomkins challenged the status quo by developing--over the span of more than 1000 pages--a theory of consciousness and motivation that placed emotion at the core of the human exp
The thematic apperception test; the theory and technique of interpretation by Silvan S Tomkins ( Book )
40 editions published between 1947 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a book about a test which is barely fifteen years old--a promising adolescent emerging from the rites of puberty. The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) has not yet attained full stature, that is certain, and perhaps this book should have awaited its further development. It is with the hope that the maturation of the test might be accelerated that I venture to publish a series of lectures delivered to a seminar on the diagnosis of personality. Many of the characteristics of lectures will be found in these pages--more questions are asked than answered, hypotheses are illustrated more than proven, much that might have been mentioned briefly is laboriously illustrated, and what might have been elaborated is expressed obliquely. It is a workbook and not a compilation of established doctrine. I have addressed myself to two audiences: those who are completely unfamiliar with the TAT and research psychologists whose interest I hoped to enlist in the exploration of a host of problems-problems of test interpretation which are also of import for the science of which the test is a constituent element. Because of these aims, the psychologist who is long familiar with the technique of interpretation and whose interests are primarily diagnostic may find too much that is well known and too much that is remote from his immediate clinical concern"--Preface.

"This book discusses affect theory. It is not primarily focused on what is current knowledge. I have sought to explore new territory. It is my intention to reopen issues which have long remained in disrepute in American Psychology: affect, imagery and consciousness. These have lately come to interest neurophysiologists and biochemists more than psychologists. This book explores positive affect, negative affect, and cognition and ideology"--Create.
