Social Motivation, Justice, and the Moral Emotions: An Attributional Approach (Paperback)Bernard Weiner (author)
- We can order this
Divided into five chapters, this book:
*considers the logical development and structure of a proposed theory of social motivation and justice;
*reviews meta-analytic tests of the theory within the contexts of help giving and aggression and examines issues related to cultural and individual differences;
*focuses on moral emotions including an analysis of admiration, envy, gratitude, jealousy, scorn, and others;
*discusses conditions where reward decreases motivation while punishment augments strivings; and
*provides applications that are beneficial in the classroom, in therapy, and in training programs.
This book appeals to practicing and research psychologists and advanced students in social, educational, personality, political/legal, health, and clinical psychology. It will also serve as a supplement in courses on motivational psychology, emotion and motivation, altruism and/or pro-social behavior, aggression, social judgment, and morality. Also included is the raw material for 13 experiments relating to core predictions of the proposed attribution theory.

"In his highly readable style, Weiner communicates the theoretical conceptualization, along with the results of dozens of studies, and applies them to moral emotions...This book further develops Weiner's rationalist approach to emotions and social judgment...[he] specifically shows how culture, personality, and political ideology play a role in his theory. It works."
