The Social Dynamics of Self-Esteem introduces a unique synthesis of the theoretical views posited by Alfred Adler, Karl Marx, Georg Simmel, and Edmond Husserl in the development of a coherent theory of self-esteem. Grounded in the humanistic tradition of Adler, self-esteem theory redefines the concepts of personality as a function of both psychological and social parameters. The authors identify 18 facets of self-esteem at three levels of ego and develop three self-esteem inventories to measure each ego level. They also advance a new socio-psychological theory of deviance and develop a "conflict theory of personality." This text will prove to be an indispensable handbook for professionals in psychology, psychiatry, social work, counselling, and pastoral therapy.
