Faglige interesser

I am interested in how elementary kinds of relational motives underpin meaningful psychological and social phenomena and intergroup relations, how these relational primitives are represented,  and in how relational motives and meanings emerge in phylo- and ontogenesis.

I see this as a general psychological topic that relates to social, cognitive, evolutionary, and developmental psychology (as well as cognitive linguistics, pragmatist philosophy and social and anthropological theory.)

I currently address it using a combination of methods that includes questionnaires and surveys, social psychological scenario- and priming experiments, looking-time experiment with infants, experimental economics games, longitudinal panel studies, and ethnographic field work and participant observation.
