Understanding People PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Understanding People free pdf "Understanding People" provides an overview and critique of contemporary psychological assumptions about people and what differentiates them, and replaces them with a set of ideas taken from social constructionism. It begins with an examination of contemporary theories, then explores the critique of the social constructionists, before laying out the basis of an understanding of human action and behaviour, drawing on phenomenology and personal construct theory. This book uses everyday experience to illustrate the issues in personality theory - is behaviour situation-specific? Why do we have a sense of self? Is there an unconscious?
