Although the study of the 'Self' has been a major theme throughout
the history of psychology, it has really come in its own during the
last half century. Because the nature of human selfhood remains
both fascinating and elusive, many different approaches and
contributions have been scattered through the journals over the
years. This four-volume collection brings together a diverse
assortment of the most important contributions in this area.
The collection includes classic, groundbreaking articles and
recent, cutting-edge advances in articles that range from original,
empirical investigations to conceptual pieces that build theory
based on integrative reviews of the research literature.
The intention is to provide a broad resource that can be used by
both beginners and experts worldwide who wish to have strong,
useful access to the classic contributions to this area of study in
one place. The field of 'Self' is particularly difficult to gain
entry to, particularly because it has such a rich and varied
history. The two editors are both well versed in the study of
'Self' and thus well qualified to provide a map of articles that
have lasting importance and influence.
