Altruistic Emotion, Cognition, and Behavior (PLE: Emotion), Hardback Book

Altruistic Emotion, Cognition, and Behavior (PLE: Emotion) Hardback

Part of the Psychology Library Editions: Emotion series


Originally published in 1986, this book was an effort to integrate thinking and research concerning the role of emotion and cognition in altruistic behaviour.

Prior to publication there was a vast body of research and theorizing concerning the development and maintenance of prosocial (including altruistic) behaviour.

This book focusses primarily on a specific set of intrapsychic factors involved in prosocial responding, especially emotions and cognitions believed to play a major role in altruistic behaviour.

In the final chapters these intrapsychic factors are also discussed in relation to a variety of other relevant factors including socialization and situational influences on altruism.
