Editorial Reviews


'I can't imagine a more interesting collection of affect researchers under one roof! Joseph Forgas has brought together the best minds in psychology, young and old, to reflect on the interface between emotion and thought. An impressive collection of findings and theory, this volume will make you wish you had travelled to Sydney to attend the original symposium itself. Excellent investigators showcase their best work.' Peter Salovey, Yale University

'At last there is a book that brings together the central findings and theories concerning the interface of social cognition and affect. This important new volume is sure to become the sourcebook for understanding the critical question of how feeling and thinking are interrelated. The editor has done an outstanding job of bringing together major contributors to answering this question. This exciting book is must reading for anyone interested in the vital role of affect in social life.' Tory Higgins, Columbia University

Book Description

Affective states have a highly important, yet little understood influence on how people think about, remember, and respond to social situations. Contributions from leading psychologists in the field review and integrate the most recent work on the role of affect in social life. It offers new insights on the fundamental links between affect and cognition, and reports recent research and theories illustrating how affective states can play a subtle and often subconscious role in guiding peoples' thoughts, memories, judgments, attitudes and behaviors in social situations. The insights offered in this book have major implications for several applied fields where the links between feeling, thinking and behavior are of interest, such as clinical, counseling, health and organizational psychology.

Format: Hardcover
This book presents one of the best summaries of recent psychological research on how feelings, emotions and moods influence our thinking, judgments and behaviors. The chapters are written by a stellar collection of international contributors from the USA, Europe and Australia. The chapters deal with such topical and interesting issues as the role of affect in forecasting future events, the links between affect and thinking processes, the influence of everyday mood states on social behaviors, the contributions of feeling to the way people use implicit stereotypes and the like. The book should be of great interest to everybody who is fascinated by the psychology of affect in everyday life - students, laypersons, clinicians, counsellors, and researchers alike.
