9780521119795: Social Facilitation (European Monographs in Social Psychology)

The presence of one person affects the behavior of another: this is known as social facilitation. It is one of the oldest topics in social psychology, first studied in 1898, yet Bernard Guerin's is the first book-length study of the phenomenon. Dr. Guerin reviews all work in the area from 1898 onward, looking at both human and animal research, and develops his own theory, based on modern theory analysis. Through his study of social facilitation, he also reviews the state of social psychology today: its strengths, its weaknesses, and its future.

Book Description:

A 1993 study of social facilitation, the oldest topic in social psychology. Bernard Guerin reviews all the research on how the presence of one person affects the behaviour of another from the first study in 1898. He looks at both human and animal research and develops his own theory, based on modern behaviour analysis.

Review:

"...contains a lot of useful history and summarized information about effects of social facilitation, including reviews of the major theories of social facilitation (drive, social conformity, cognitive process) and a bibliography of over 700 references spanning work since 1898....of interest to social, cognitive, and clinical psychologists." Psychological Report

"...this second edition offers a wealth of fresh research and new case examples as well as seven completely new chapters..." Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society
