Abstract

The advantage of a developmental approach to personality, as compared with a static approach where traits provide the theoretical fundament, was the main focus of discussions by a group of psychologists in Lund, Sweden, beginning in the 1940s. Ulf Kragh was a prominent member of that group, not least because of his wide and critical reading in continental psychology. The Aktualgenese people were, of course, included, likewise their spiritual godfather in Leipzig, Felix Krüger, the developmental theorist Heinz Werner, and, on top of that, the psychoanalysts, all of them basically with a developmental outlook.
