  • Perspectives on Behavioral Self-Regulationby Robert S. Jr. Wyer

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 61.95

    The feedback model of self-regulation developed by the authors of the lead article in this volume has been one of the most successful theoretical formulations of regulatory processes to date.

  • Ruminative Thoughtsby Robert S. Jr. Wyer

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 49.95

    Until recently, most theory and research in social information processing has focused attention on the cognitive activity that underlies responses to stimulus information presented in the immediate situation being investigated.

  • Stereotype Activation and Inhibitionby Robert S. Jr. Wyer

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    The use of social sterotypes as a basis for judgments and behavioral decisions has been a major focus of social psychological theory and research since the field began. Although motivational and cognitive influences on stereotyping have been considered, these two general types of influence have rarely been conceptually integrated within a common theoretical... more...

  • The Automaticity of Everyday Lifeby Robert S. Jr. Wyer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    As Skinner argued so pointedly, the more we know about the situational causes of psychological phenomena, the less need we have for postulating internal conscious mediating processes to explain those phenomena. Now, as the purview of social psychology is precisely to discover those situational causes of thinking, feeling, and acting in the real or... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    Written by one of the foremost authorities in social cognition, Social Comprehension and Judgment examines how people process information encountered in their everyday lives. In the book, Dr. Wyer proposes a new theory about the way in which information acquired in everyday life is comprehended and represented in memory, and how it is later used... more...

  • Knowledge and Memory: the Real Storyby Robert S. Jr. Wyer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    Narrative forms of mental representation and their influence on comprehension, communication and judgment, have rapidly become one of the main foci of research and theory in not only psychology but also other disciplines, including linguistics, sociology, and anthropology. No one has been more responsible for the awakening of interest in this area... more...

  • Memory and Cognition in Its Social Contextby Robert S. Jr. Wyer; Thomas K. Srull

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    The first comprehensive theoretical formulation of the way people use information they receive about their social environments to make judgments and behavioral decisions, this volume focuses on the cognitive processes that underlie the use of social information. These include initial interpretation, the representations used to make inferences, and... more...

  • Content and Process Specificity in the Effects of Prior Experiencesby Robert S. Jr. Wyer; Thomas K. Srull

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 90.00

    In Volume 3, Eliot R. Smith of Purdue University proposes that social cognition theorists have placed excessive emphasis on the role of schemata, prototypes, and various other types of abstractions. This has affected both the methodologies they use and the type of theories they construct. What has not been adequately appreciated is the storage and... more...

  • Handbook of Social Cognition, Second Editionby Robert S. Jr. Wyer; Thomas K. Srull

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    This edition of the Handbook follows the first edition by 10 years. The earlier edition was a promissory note, presaging the directions in which the then-emerging field of social cognition was likely to move. The field was then in its infancy and the areas of research and theory that came to dominate the field during the next decade were only beginning... more...
