Warsaw Lectures in Personality and Social Psychology- Volume 2

These are intellectually exciting times in the fields of personality, cognition, and emotion, with rapid progress being achieved at both theoretical and empirical levels. There are now sufficient findings to provide the basis for integrative theories within these disciplines. In Volume 2 of the series, the editors and contributors examine the interactive influences of personality, cognition, and emotion in order to attain a comprehensive understanding of human behavior.

Chapters in Part I focus on the relevance to emotion and cognition of individual differences in trait anxiety, emotional intelligence, aging, agentic traits, and communal traits. By contrast, Part II is concerned with emotions and with the relationships between emotional states and various aspects of individual differences and cognitive processes: What factors determine the nature and intensity of emotional experience? How is an individual’s behavior changed as a result of being in a given emotional state?

The concluding chapter, with over one hundred references, presents an integration of the research areas discussed in the book and provides an excellent theoretical framework that will prove invaluable for further research and theory.



'After perusing the chapters included in Volume 2 . . . I am firmly convinced that researchers and students interested in personality and social psychology will find this book both challenging and exciting. My congratulations to all those who contributed in different ways to this significant work.'

From the Foreword by Jan Strelau, Pro-Rector for Research Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities

'[S]ets the bar very high in seeking to integrate domains that are divergent, not only in terms of their content . . . but also in terms of their preferred methodologies, which frequently appear to be antithetical . . . . Although the lofty aim of integration is ultimately unrealized, at the end of the book the reader is left with a newfound impression that it is, quite possibly, realizable.' (K. V. Petrides, Personality and Individual Differences)
