Self-Representation: Life Narrative Studies in Identity and Ideology

Synopsis

Gregg offers a new look at self-representation that falls into both the older "study of lives" tradition in personality psychology and the newer "narrative psychology." By applying methods of symbolic analysis to the texts of life-historical interviews, he presents a generative model of self-representation. His work re-analyzes such famous case studies as Freud's "Rat Man," presents original life-narrative analyses, and draws the theories and observations together to create a compelling model of self-representation.
