Social motivation, justice, and the moral emotions : an attributional approach by Bernard Weiner( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social Motivation, Justice, and the Moral Emotions proposes an attribution theory of interpersonal or social motivation that distinguishes between the role of thinking and feeling in determining action. The place of this theory within the larger fields of motivation and attributional analyses is explored. It features new thoughts concerning social motivation on such topics as help giving, aggression, achievement evaluation, compliance to commit a transgression, as well as new contributions to the understanding of social justice. Included also is material on moral emotions, with discussions of admiration, contempt, envy, gratitude, and other affects not considered in Professor Weiner's prior work. The text also contains previously unexamined topics regarding social inferences of arrogance and modesty."--Publisher's website
Human motivation by Bernard Weiner( Book )

53 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weiner introduces -- and offers his own motivation for producing - - this most impressive work with the following: There are two distinct approaches to the study of motivation. One stratagem is a product of academic, experimental procedures, while the second is an outgrowth of clinical, non-experimental methods. Each of the approaches has unique advantages and disadvantages. But all investigators in this field are guided by a single basic question, namely, ""Why do organisms think and behave as they do?"" To help answer that basic question, Human Motivation presents an e

An attributional theory of motivation and emotion by Bernard Weiner( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time I have had the gnawing desire to convey the broad motivational sig­ nificance of the attributional conception that I have espoused and to present fully the argument that this framework has earned a rightful place alongside other leading theories of motivation. Furthermore, recent investigations have yielded insights into the attributional determinants of affect, thus providing the impetus to embark upon a detailed discussion of emotion and to elucidate the relation between emotion and motivation from an attributional perspective. The presentation of a unified theory of motivation and emotion is the goal of this book. My more specific aims in the chapters to follow are to: 1) Outline the basic princi­ ples that I believe characterize an adequate theory of motivation; 2) Convey what I perceive to be the conceptual contributions of the perspective advocated by my col­ leagues and me; 3) Summarize the empirical relations, reach some definitive con­ clusions, and point out the more equivocal empirical associations based on hypotheses derived from our particular attribution theory; and 4) Clarify questions that have been raised about this conception and provide new material for still further scrutiny. In so doing, the building blocks (if any) laid down by the attributional con­ ception will be readily identified and unknown juries of present and future peers can then better determine the value of this scientific product
Cognitive views of human motivation by Bernard Weiner( Book )

16 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognitive Views of Human Motivation contains papers that were first presented during a symposium at the annual convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), held in San Francisco in February 1974. The book has five chapters and opens with a discussion of historical trends in cognition and motivation. This is followed by separate chapters on cognitive and coping processes in emotion, cognitive appraisals and transformations in self-control, an attributional model of achievement motivation, and cognitive control of action. The audiences for this book are psycholog
Human motivation : metaphors, theories, and research by Bernard Weiner( Book )

31 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human Motivation qualifies both as a superb textbook for upper- division psychology majors and graduate students and as an important sourcebook for motivational scholars and researchers. ... Readers will be pleased to find that this text is extraordinarily well written, with a style not unlike that of a good novel. Other desirable features, from a teaching perspective, are 12 illustrative experiments for students to complete and interspersed biographical sketches of eminent motivational theorists. ... Bernard Weiner's volume represents the culmination of years of research and scholarship and will offer an array of insights to students who are more advanced. It is also likely to be used as a motivation sourcebook for years to come."--Contemporary Psychology Use the quote above for next mailing 9/93 "This is a truly outstanding work, comprehensive in its coverage and innovative in its approach. By using the device of metaphor, Bernard Weiner has brilliantly clarified the relationship among the different theoretical perspectives on motivation. Encompassing both research and theory, the volume surveys classical and recent motivation theories, and culminates in an exciting and challenging new perspective. The book qualifies both as a highly attractive text and as an essential volume for all motivational psychologists. Highly recommended. This brilliant work effectively communicates the excitement of research on the 'whys' of human behavior, a field to which Weiner himself has been a major contributor. Rather than just presenting one theory after another Weiner has organized them in an original and easy-to-comprehend fashion."--Paul McReynolds, Emeritus Professor, University of Nevada--Reno
Judgments of responsibility : a foundation for a theory of social conduct by Bernard Weiner( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This intriguing new work provides a careful examination of how judgments of ourselves and others relate to problems and, in so doing, yields valuable insight into human interactions and motivational processes. Laying out a general theory of social motivation, the author incorporates a number of well-researched areas in social psychology and motivation to elucidate basic principles that guide human conduct across culture and time. Chapters reveal how responsibility inferences are reached, the manner in which such judgments affect emotions, and the role that "cold" judgments of responsibility versus "hot" feelings, such as anger, play in producing both positive and negative behaviors. The author demonstrates that the ways others are perceived influence the behaviors directed toward them, showing how attributions of personal causality are followed by judgments of responsibility. These inferences then give rise to other-directed emotions such as anger and sympathy which, in turn, generate antisocial and prosocial actions. Providing a conceptual system that permits readers a deeper understanding of motivational processes and suggests guidelines for more effective interventions, this book is insightful reading for a wide range of scholars
