An atlas of interpersonal situations by Harold H Kelley( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Atlas of Interpersonal Situations provides a systematic theoretical account for understanding the impact of situations on patterns of social interaction. Through descriptions of 21 of the most common situations that people encounter in everyday life, the authors aim to give readers the tools needed to understand how those situations influence interpersonal behavior. These descriptions are intended to be freestanding, each one offering analysis, research examples, and descriptions of the prototypical situation. The authors build upon the tools of interdependence theory, which stresses the manner in which people's outcomes are determined by the structure of their interaction with each other. This analysis makes clear exactly what is 'social' about 'social psychology.'"--Publisher's description

Reward and punishment in social dilemmas by Paul A. M. van Lange( )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key scientific challenges is the puzzle of human cooperation. Why do people cooperate? Why do people help strangers, even sometimes at a major cost to themselves? Why do people want to punish others who violate norms and undermine collective interests? Reward and punishment is a classic theme in research on social dilemmas. More recently, it has received considerable attention from scientists working in various disciplines such as economics, neuroscience, and psychology. We know now that reward and punishment can promote cooperation in so-called public good dilemmas, where people need to decide how much from their personal resources to contribute to the public good. Clearly, enjoying the contributions of others while not contributing is tempting. Punishment (and reward) are effective in reducing free-riding. Yet the recent explosion of research has also triggered many questions. For example, who can reward and punish most effectively? Is punishment effective in any culture? What are the emotions that accompany reward and punishment? Even if reward and punishment are effective, are they also efficient -- knowing that rewards and punishment are costly to administer? How can sanctioning systems best organized to be reduce free-riding? The chapters in this book, the first in a series on human cooperation, explore the workings of reward and punishment, how they should be organized, and their functions in society, thereby providing a synthesis of the psychology, economics, and neuroscience of human cooperation. --Provided by publisher
Bridging social psychology : benefits of transdisciplinary approaches by Paul A. M. van Lange( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging Social Psychology illuminates the unique contribution the field of social psychology can bring to understanding major scientific and societal problems. The book focuses on illustrating the benefits and costs of bridging social psychology with other fields of psychology, including cognitive, developmental, and personality psychology, as well as other disciplines such as biology, neuroscience and economics. The 65 essays, written by eminent leaders in the field, demonstrate the relationship of social psychology with: (1) biology, neuroscience and cognitive science; (2) personality, emotion, and development; (3) relationship science, interaction, and health; and (4) organizational science, culture, and economics. The book also examines the key assumptions of social psychology, where the field is headed, and its unique contribution to basic theoretical and broad societal questions (e.g. promoting health in society). --from book description, Amazon.com
Handbook of theories of social psychology by Paul A. M. van Lange( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume handbook provides an exploration of the major developments of social psychological theories that have taken place over the past half century, culminating in a state of the art overview of the primary theories and models that have been developed in this field. Authored by leading international experts, each chapter represents a personal and historical narrative of teach theory's development including the inspirations, critical junctures and problem-solving efforts that have effected the choices made in each theory's evolution as well as the impact each has had on the canon of social psychology. Unique to this handbook, these narratives provide a rich background for understanding how theories are created more generally; how they're nurtured and shaped over time; and how through examination we can better understand their unique contribution to society as a whole
Power, politics, and paranoia : why people are suspicious of their leaders by Jan-Willem van Prooijen( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Powerful societal leaders - such as politicians and Chief Executives - are frequently met with substantial distrust by the public. But why are people so suspicious of their leaders? One possibility is that 'power corrupts', and therefore people are right in their reservations. Indeed, there are numerous examples of unethical leadership, even at the highest level, as the Watergate and Enron scandals clearly illustrate. Another possibility is that people are unjustifiably paranoid, as underscored by some of the rather far-fetched conspiracy theories that are endorsed by a surprisingly large portion of citizens. Are societal power holders more likely than the average citizen to display unethical behaviour? How do people generally think and feel about politicians? How do paranoia and conspiracy beliefs about societal power holders originate? In this book, prominent scholars address these intriguing questions and illuminate the many facets of the relations between power, politics and paranoia."
How to publish high-quality research by Jeff Joireman( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In compelling, user-friendly prose, the authors explain how young scholars can create high-quality research that attains a high impact. They describe how to generate strong, original ideas, how to design experiments, and how to organize findings into clear and compelling research articles. They then examine the work of widely-admired scholars who have developed innovative assessment tools and research methods, and researchers whose work has shifted paradigms, bridged disciplines, and challenged long-held assumptions. Throughout, the authors convey an infectious enthusiasm for colleagues whose work has inspired them in their own careers.--
Cheating, corruption, and concealment : the roots of dishonesty( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People can be dishonest creatures. Many exaggerate their achievements, downplay their moral failures, lie about the number of hours they have put into a collaborative project, and cheat on their spouses. When reporting income taxes, many people are tempted to strategically "forget" sources of income. Treasurers of professional organizations are found to transfer collective funds to their private account. Also prominent people in society are regularly caught performing dishonest behavior. The past decade has seen various instances of high-profile corporate fraud cases, in which powerful managers embezzled large sums of money, or deliberately misrepresented their profits to stakeholders. Politicians that publicly stand up for traditional family values have been discovered in shady hotel rooms with prostitutes. Prolific scientists have committed plagiarism or data fraud. In fact, at the moment of writing this chapter, the FIFA corruption scandal is still unfolding, and many high-ranked officials have been arrested under the charge of accepting bribes when allocating important soccer tournaments to competing countries. Clearly, dishonesty is part of human nature, and can be found in all layers of society"--
Social dilemmas : the psychology of human cooperation by Samuel S Komorita( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key scientific challenges is the puzzle of human cooperation. Why do people cooperate? Why do people help strangers, even sometimes at a major cost to themselves? Why do people want to punish people who violate norms and undermine collective interests? This book is inspired by the fact that social dilemmas, defined in terms of conflicts between (often short-term) self-interest and (often longer-term) collective interest, are omnipresent. The book centers on two major themes. The first theme centers on the theoretical understanding of human cooperation: are people indeed other-regarding? The second theme is more practical, and perhaps normative: how can cooperation be promoted? This question is at the heart of the functioning of relationships, organizations, as well as the society as a whole. In capturing the breadth and relevance of social dilemmas and psychology of human cooperation, this book is structured in three parts. The first part focuses on the definition of social dilemmas, along with the historical development of scientific theorizing of human cooperation and the development of social dilemma as a game in which to study cooperation. The second part presents three chapters, each of which adopts a relatively unique perspective on human cooperation: an evolutionary perspective, a psychological perspective, and a cultural perspective. The third part focuses on applications of social dilemmas in domains as broad and important as management and organizations, environmental issues, politics, national security, and health. Social Dilemmas is strongly inspired by the notion that science is never finished. Each chapter therefore concludes with a discussion of two (or more) basic issues that are often inherently intriguing, and often need more research and theory. The concluding chapter outlines avenues for future directions
Trust in social dilemmas by Paul A. M. van Lange( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key scientific challenges is the puzzle of human cooperation. Why do people cooperate with one another? What causes individuals to lend a helping hand to a stranger, even if it comes at a major cost to their own well-being? Why do people severely punish those who violate social norms and undermine the collective interest? Edited by Paul A.M. Van Lange, Bettina Rockenbach, and Toshio Yamagishi, Trust in Social Dilemmas carefully considers the role of trust in establishing, promoting, and maintaining overall human cooperation. By exploring the impact of trust and effective cooperation on relationships, organizations, and communities, Trust in Social Dilemmas draws inspiration from the fact that social dilemmas, defined in terms of conflicts between self-interest and the collective interest, are omnipresent in today's society. In capturing the breadth and relevance of trust to social dilemmas and human cooperation more generally, this book is structured in three effective parts for readers: the biology and development of trust; the importance of trust for groups and organizations; and how trust factors across the overall health of today's society. As Van Lange, Rockenbach, Yamagishi, and their team of expert contributors all explore in this compelling new volume, there is little doubt that trust and cooperation are intimately related in most - if not all - of our social dilemmas.--

The social psychology of morality by Sydney Symposium of Social Psychology( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Plato's 'Republic' was written over two thousand years ago, one of the main concerns of social philosophy and later empirical social science was to understand the moral nature of human beings. The faculty to think and act in terms of overarching moral values is as much a defining hallmark of our species as is our intelligence, so homo moralis is no less an appropriate term to describe humans as homo sapiens. This volume makes a case for the pivotal role of social psychology as the core discipline for studying morality. The book is divided into four parts. First, the role of social psychological processes in moral values and judgments is discussed, followed by an analysis of the role of morality in interpersonal processes. The sometimes paradoxical, ironic effects of moral beliefs are described next, and in the final section the role of morality in collective and group behavior is considered. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in the social and behavioral sciences concerned with moral behavior, as well as professionals and practitioners in clinical, counseling, organizational, marketing and educational psychology where issues of ethics and morality are of importance
