Overview

This collection, published in 1988, brings an innovative perspective to research in social cognition. It assembles fifteen chapters by many leading scholars in the field, which together provide an innovative and integrative analysis of the phenomenon of human knowledge. Three themes dominate the book. The first concerns the nature of knowledge and the way it differs from cognition. The second concerns the issue of generality versus specificity in conceptions of social knowledge. Finally, the third theme concerns the fundamental question of knowledge validity. The volume as a whole refreshingly broadens the scope of social psychological inquiry and opens up exciting areas of study.
