    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.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

No one has been more responsible for the awakening of interest in this area... 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 2013; US$ 49.95

  • The Content, Structure, and Operation of Thought Systemsby Robert S. Jr. Wyer; Thomas K. Srull

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 63.95

    If anyone deserves the title "father of social cognition," it is William J. McGuire who, along with his wife and colleague Claire V. McGuire, has written the target article for this volume. The culmination of many years of work, the article discusses their highly developed theory of human thought systems, and establishes many new directions for theoretical... more...

  • Perspectives on Anger and Emotionby Robert S. Jr. Wyer; Thomas K. Srull

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    In this volume, Berkowitz develops the argument that experiential and behavioral components of an emotional state are affected by many processes: some are highly cognitive in nature; others are automatic and involuntary. Cognitive and associative mechanisms theoretically come into play at different times in the emotion-cognition sequence. The model... more...
