Om boken:

Med markerte forskere som Moscovici og Tajfel i spissen har det i den europeiske sosialpsykologien alltid vært kritikk mot den toneangivende amerikansk dominerte, individorienterte og laboratoriebaserte sosialpsykologien. Europeisk sosialpsykologi har argumentert for at sosialpsykologien må trekke inn samfunnet, kulturen eller makronivået. I boka ”Societal Approaches in Social Psychology” har Joaquim Pires Valentim nå samlet en rekke av Europas fremstående sosialpsykologer med Willem Doise, tidligere president i European Association of Social Psychology, som den ledende for igjen å vise hvorfor og hvordan samfunnsnivået kan og bør trekkes inn.

Forlagets omtale:

This book deals with the «social side» of social psychology from diverse points of view. Several European authors analyse this topic from different theoretical and methodological perspectives. In particular, special attention is given to socio-historical frameworks, ideologies, and normative and cultural meaning systems in order to develop a psychosocial understanding of the phenomena under study.
The work is composed of two parts. The first part, with five chapters, is centered on theoretical reflection, discussion and conceptual integration. The second part, with four chapters, focuses on specific empirical fields that illustrate paths by which research can express societal concerns for the study of social psychology in contemporary societies.
