Postautonomous Ego Development

Postautonomous Ego Development cover

A Study of Its Nature and Measurement


Susanne R. Cook-Greuter

This study makes both a theoretical and a practical contribution to positive adult psychology by mapping and clarifying mature, postautonomous personality development and by providing stage distinctions and thematic categories to assess it. Moreover, these criteria may be useful in evaluating reality perspectives of mature individuals in other discourse contexts and other cultures. Finally, this thesis begins to bridge Western conceptions of psychological growth as increasing individuation and self-integration with Eastern notions of the permanent self as a transitional phenomenon that may be recognized as a guiding fiction and transcended.
