Psychoanalytic Theories of Personality Development
呂俊甫（William J. F. LEW）
This paper interprets and compares two major psychoanalytic theories of personality development, namely, Sigmund Freud's psychosexual theory and Erik Erikson's psychosocial theory. As a growing number of developmental psychologists are teaching courses and doing research that cover the entire life span rather than just childhood and/or adolescence, Erikson's eight ages of man as interpreted in this paper may be of special interest to Chinese students of education and psychology in Hong Kong and elsewhere.
