Developing Self in Work and Career

"Developing Self in Work and Career considers the four problems of the self-knowledge, meaning, identity, and circumstance-within the broad domains of theoretical models, counseling methods, and social contexts of career choice and development. In so doing, the book recognizes and aims to advance the self's prominence in the psychological and social sciences, dating from William James's (1892) late-19th-century writings to C.H. Cooley's (1902) and G.H. Mead's (1934) early 20th-century sociological conceptions, to Carl Rogers's (1951) theory and practice innovations at mid-20th century, to "the contemporary explosion of work on this topic" (Mischel & Morf, 2003, p. 15). Scholars concede that although the self has enjoyed tremendous use and study linked to an array of topics across a multitude of subfields, this knowledge now requires integration into a cumulative science and, we add, practice of the self (Leary & Tangney, 2003a; Mischel & Morf, 2003)"--Chapter.
