Abstract:

This edition continues to focus on the four major and influential perspectives in contemporary social psychology - social cognition, social identity, social representations, and discursive psychology. A foundational chapter presenting an account of these perspectives is then followed by topic-based chapters from the point of view of each perspective in turn, discussing commonalities and divergences across each of them. Key Features of the this edition: Now includes coverage of the social neuroscience paradigm and research on implicit social cognition ; Updated pedagogical features and visual material ; An extended conclusion covers the ways in which the different approaches of the field intersect as well as a general discussion of the direction in which the field is moving. This book is an integrative, holistic textbook that will enhance the reader's understanding of social cognition and of each of the topical issues considered. It remains a key textbook for psychology students, particularly those on courses in social psychology and social cognition.
