Cognitive Science Perspectives on Personality and Emotion
- G. Matthews, Department of Psychology, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN, UK
This book aims to highlight the vigour, diversity and insight of the various cognitive science perspectives on personality and emotion. It aims also to emphasise the rigorous scientific basis for research to be found in the integration of experimental psychology with neuroscience, connectionism and the new evolutionary psychology. The contributors to this book provide a wide-ranging survey of leading-edge research topics. It is divided into three parts, on general frameworks for cognitive science, on perspectives from emotion research, and on perspectives from studies of personality traits.
For psychologists, cognitive scientists and social scientists.
