This paper discusses early theories of psychology as they relate to personality theory and to explaining human behavior. The paper details Freud's theory of psychoanalysis, Jung's conception of the mind and Erikson's psychosocial theory of development.

From the Paper:

"Early theories of psychology were shaped by different theories of the personality, it source and meaning in the individual. The theory of personality adopted by different theorists helped determine how they explained human behavior, as can be seen with the early theories of Freud, Jung, Erikson, and others, theories with related concepts but different underlying concepts of personality.
"Sigmund Freud developed a theory of the dynamics of the human kind and gave birth to psychoanalytic theory and practice as a way of analyzing human behavior and addressing human problems. Freud's approach indicates that there are certain innate processes at work. Freud developed his theory at the end of the nineteenth century at a time when Darwin had demonstrated that human beings and animals have much in common."
