Excerpt

It is always difficult to keep roots in the past and still keep up with the future. We have tried, in this revision, to include as much new material as will keep it abreast of the rapid developments in the field, yet retain from the previous edition those papers which seem to us the best in the particular fields--at least so far as the less easily accessible literature is concerned.

The first essay, Part One, A Conception of Personality, has been entirely rewritten. The second has had only minor additions and revisions. Although limitations of space preclude the extended treatment we had hoped to give to the concept of values, the new papers by Drs. Dorothy Lee, Florence Kluckhohn, Erik H. Erikson, and Raymond A. Bauer should give the serious student a good start in this field, which cannot be ignored by the student of personality. The papers by Drs. Bauer and Inkeles were written especially for this volume and are not available elsewhere. Drs. Florence Kluckhohn, Erik H. Erikson, and David M. Schneider rewrote and substantially reworked their papers especially for this volume. The papers by Drs. Leites and Rosenzweig each treat of an aspect of literature, a problem neglected in the first edition of this book.

We are enormously grateful to our collaborator, Dr. David M. Schneider, upon whom the major burden of reviewing the newer literature and editing this second edition has fallen. The genuine strengthening of the book which we feel to have been accomplished is largely the result of his hard work and sensitive judgment.
