From the Publisher
Offers an evolutionary theory of personality, connecting the conceptual structures of personology with its foundations in the natural sciences. The author presents a unified approach to personality theory, addresses personality disorders and considers therapeutic interventions.
From the Inside Flap
Having weathered the storm of polemic and willful neglect from both the professional and academic communities, personology is experiencing a second flowering. Considering any personality theory as unscientific and archaic, proponents of the empirical and positivist schools that predominated in the sixties and seventies chose to dismiss a century of analytic trailblazing by such as Freud, Jung, Horney, Sullivan, et al., and concentrated instead on "objectively real" traits, S-R bonds, or statistical factors. Now, with the advent of the American Psychiatric Associations most recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III-R), personality disorders are once again deemed fundamental to an understanding of other psychopathologies. And nowhere has personology experienced a more full and viable recrudescence than in the work of Theodore Millon, author of Disorders of Personality and contributor to DSM-III and the forthcoming DSM-IV. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Millon explicates his new theory of personality, its foundations and applications to the study of psychopathology. He draws on the principles inherent in the physical and biological sciences to fashion a model based, in great part, in modern evolutionary theory. This innovative conceptual structure sees personality in terms of its basic survival and adaptive functionsespecially in the polarities of pleasure/pain, passivity/activity and self/other. After developing the foundations of his conceptual model, Millon shows how it undergirds much of psychology in general, as well as psychopathologic theory, classification, assessment, and intervention. Rooted in natural scientific principles and exhibiting all the intellectual rigor typical of its illustrious antecedents, this groundbreaking work is destined to be seminal in informing the next generation of mental health clinicians, researchers, and theorists. An essential tool for psychologists, psychiatrists and academic personality psychologists, it will broaden and deepen your understanding of personality and its disorders.
