Social Structure and Personality. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract How can anyone review a book containing 12 essays by Parsons on subjects ranging from the "Superego and the Theory of Social Systems" to "Some Theoretical Considerations Bearing on the Field of Medical Sociology"? Each one of these previously published essays is selected for its application to personality theory from the viewpoint of the major social science theorist of our times. Psychiatrists who are erudite enough to understand and who are curious enough to be interested in the relations between personality and social systems will find this volume of essays directed toward them and worthy of their careful perusal. As one who has spent many hours listening to and reading from Talcott Parsons, I guarantee that such psychiatrists will find their efforts rewarding and interesting, provided they are prepared to work at understanding. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of General Psychiatry American Medical Association
