Persons, Situations, Interactions, and the Future of Personality
Professor Hyland addresses two issues in his paper—what the person-situation debate is about and, more significantly, where we go from here. Basic to the author’s position is the suggestion that what is in fact largely a methodological debate has been interpreted as one based on theoretical differences. I believe that this interpretation involves a somewhat artificial distinction and ignores much of the past and current history of the debate.
