Through analysis of the lives and theories of the three major exponents of humanism, Allport, Maslow, and Murray, the authors have marshaled some compelling arguments for an alternative to the extreme behaviorism of Skinner and the logical positivism of Freud. This work is a concise, clear synthesis of both broad theoretical positions and specific concepts that underlie humanistic psychology.
The "Third Force" (humanism) suggests that man possesses both freedom and dignity and that he possesses them in the face of an often hostile and coercive society. Thus, exponents of humanism conducted their personality experiments in a natural environment, imposing few, if any, external controls.
A compact example of critical evaluation at its best, Humanism in Personology stands alone in its successful attempt to correlate the theory of humanism as it exists today with an incisive study of the men who shaped its course. Maddi and Costa proceed from the level of metatheory to a lucid presentation of the specific constructs of three personality psychologists.
The book contains an extensive theoretical summary table explaining the theoretical differences between Allport, Maslow, and Murray. Also featured is a comprehensive glossary of personality terms which is exceedingly valuable for new students in the field. Intended as a supplementary text for undergraduate courses in personality, social psychology, human development, human socialization, or philosophy, this work is also a valuable resource for clinicians, teachers, guidance counselors, graduates, and undergraduates in psychology.
