Psychology of Emotions

Psychology of Emotions

Five Volume Set
Edited by:

December 2007 | 2 104 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The psychology of emotion is an extraordinarily broad enterprise, attracting interest from researchers in virtually every sub-discipline. This presents a formidable challenge to an editor selecting 75 papers to represent key contributions to the development of knowledge in the field. The five volumes that make up these Benchmark Papers are divided into a total of nine subsections. Section 1 focuses on theoretical contributions and on papers that examine cognitive approaches to emotion. Section 2 is concerned with social, cultural, and organizational psychology perspectives on emotion. The whole of Section 3 is devoted to physiological and neuroscience contributions to the literature. Section 4 covers developmental psychology, health psychology, and abnormal psychology.

Covering the entire scope of the psychology of emotion, this collection contains benchmark readings with a combination of classic works and more recent key publications, and will be included as part of the SAGE Benchmarks in Psychology series.

Volume 1 covers topics in emotion theory and cognitive approaches to studying emotion

Volume 2 covers social, cultural, and organizational aspects of emotion

Volume 3 covers physiological and neuroscience approaches to emotion

Volume 4 covers developmental, health, and clinical approaches to emotion

This four-volume reference set will make an invaluable addition to any academic library with an interest in and/or existing collections in the psychology of emotion. It should provide an excellent supplement on courses in emotion where students need to engage with the theoretical views and empirical research that have made this field of inquiry so fascinating and a perfect reference work for researchers from any domain of emotional research.
