Ellen White had amazing insights in the area of personality traits and personality development, the issue of nature and nurture in character formation, mental health, and behavioral modification. While I'm sure she might have reflected some of the current thinking of her times, she still was ahead of her time considering the fact that a lot of the issues she dealt very well with were confirmed by the sciences a century later.
Volume 1 (which is what I've read so far) deals with the study of the mind, how religion helps the mind, emotions, prenatal influence on character formation, parental influence, nature vs. nurture, love, infatuation, sexuality, self-respect, dependence and independence (an important topic), guilt, doubt, marriage, principles of motivation, and principles of education, study and learning.
UPDATE: I previously had doubts about the idea of "prenatal influence on character formation." This was written at the turn of the century, and it certainly did not sound very scientific. BUT, I just attended a panel discussion at Notre Dame between biologists and ethicists, and a study was described that proves that there apparently is a prenatal influence on character formation. Ellen White was way ahead of her time!
