Presenting an integrated personality theory, this book shows how basic existential and developmental issues underlie the severe pathology of personality disorders, the nagging symptoms of neurosis, and the more functional coping and adaptation of character styles. It details both an external description of these personalities along the continuum of psychic structure and the internal experience that makes human behavior understandable and worthy of empathy.
