Example text

Maslow, in his cavalier, swashbuckling manner, announced that American psychologists have listened to Allport's call for an idiographic psychology but have not done much about it. Not even the clinical psychologists have. We now have an added push from the phenomenologists and existentialists in this direction, one that will be vel)' hard to resist, indeed, I think, theoretically impossible to resist. If the study of the uniqueness of the individual does not fit into what we know of science, then so much the worse for the conception of science.

It is with the respects in which every man is "like no other man" that this hom of Allport'S dilemma is concerned. "Individuality," he insisted, "is a prime characteristic of the human nature" (Allport, 1961, p. 21). Moreover, Allport reminded us: The application of knowledge is always to the single case .... With all its weaknesses the case study remains the preferred tool of all clinicians, psychiatrists, personnel officers, and consulting psychologists. They did find that the single case cannot be reduced to a colligation of scores.

Allport's truism, borrowed from Kluckhohn and Murray, was that every man is in certain respects (a) like all other men, (b) like some other men, (c) like no other man. That distinction was known much earlier and it was made the very basis of a "differential psychology" by William Stem as early as 1911 (Stem, 1921). Allport seems to have imported the issue from Hamburg into the American literature with some noteworthy distortions by emphasizing a spurious contradiction at the expense of dialectic unity.
