Abstract:

"Psychologists and others have always been looking for some way to avoid mere fact-gathering and have always tried to find a means of parsimoniously and fruitfully linking all sorts of data. This attempt to theorize and build models for the purpose of generating new questions about behavior and gaining new insights and understanding is not at all new, of course. But the issue of developing theories and models seems to be a particularly live one since more and more interest-areas which previously were regarded as disparate are overlapping one with another. Recent experimental studies as well as theoretical papers seem to indicate that psychiatrists, personologists, perceptionists, learning theoreticians, neurologists, and physiologists are using each other's techniques and reading each other's papers. It is within this context that "Theoretical Models and Personality Theory" discusses the rules of procedure and models which would make these contacts more economical and productive. The book begins with a general discussion of personality and personality theory. The second and third chapters discuss, respectively, theoretical models in biology and psychology and the role of neurological ideas in psychology. In the fourth chapter, the author presents the conceptual model of psychoanalysis. The author of the fifth chapter comments on theoretical models of personality, illustrated by the development of a theory of conflict behavior. Authored by H.J. Eysenck, Chapter Six examines the organization of personality. Biological intelligence is the focus of the seventh chapter, and the book closes with the presentation of a theoretical model for personality studies in Chapter Eight"--Publisher.
