About this title

Synopsis:

Effective social interaction requires sophisticated mental and motivational strategies. The Social Mind reviews and integrates recent psychological research on the relationship between people's thoughts and motives--their "social mind"--and their interpersonal strategies. The research shows that success in personal relationships, group behavior and strategic interaction are all significantly influenced by how individuals interpret and explain the social world around them. The implications of this research for personal adjustment, organizational effectiveness and clinical, counseling, and health psychology are also explored.

Review:

"The editors of this book once again collected some of social psychology's best researchers, and allowed them to produce an exciting and wide-ranging collection of chapters that explore how the world within the mind represents, creates, interacts with, and is influenced by the world without." Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University

"At last here is a volume that provides a compelling answer to the question of what is `social' about social cognition. The editors have assembled a stellar cast of social psychology researchers to address this question head-on and the result is eye-opening and mind-expanding. From intraindividual to interpersonal to group processes, the consistent message throughout the chapters of the volume is that of the inextricable connections between human cognition and social behavior. Empirically and conceptually the contributors to this project make a convincing case that, for human beings, mental life IS social life." Marilynn B. Brewer, Ohio State University

"...the book makes an important contribution to the field and will be of particular relevance to researchers in social psychology. I was also rather surprised at how relevant the book is to practitioners." Contemporary Psychology
