Psychology

posted by .

I am writing a paper and do not understand part of this question. The question is as stated: Describe the background, theoretical perspective, and contributions to the field of psychology of the person you have chosen. What is meant when I have to describe their theoretical perspective? I looked up theoretical perspective but just don't understand.

  • Psychology -

    Theoretical perspective is the way in which the person views the world, its people, and their interactions. Freud, for instance, saw everything as parts of a person's id, ego, and superego. He felt that a person's personality developed from early childhood and had a lot to do with his relationships with his mother.
