ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Endeavors in Psychology collects for the first time in one volume the articles and essays that together represent the essentials of Henry A. Murray's psychological and philosophical thought.

Dr. Murray--embryologist, surgeon, psychoanalyst, Melville scholar, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of the Harvard Psychological Clinic of Harvard University for thirty years--is one of the most influential figures in American psychology. His 1938 book, "Explorations in Personality," which ranks with William James' "Principles of Psychology" as one of the seminal books in the field, lays the foundation for the psychology of personality, which he prefers to call "personology."
