Abstract

This article proposes a merger of the systemic and largely cognitive concerns that informed most of Alexander George's contributions to political psychology in the years beginning with the 1970s with George's earlier, more holistic, preoccupation with individual psychology, as manifested in his classic study with Juliette George of Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House. The case for such a merger is made by means of an illustrative examination of a historical episode of misperception on the part of policy makers which cannot be adequately understood without analyzing the particular personal qualities of the individuals who figured in the episode.
