9780127099903: Dynamical Systems in Social Psychology

A dynamical system refers to a set of elements that interact in complex, often nonlinear ways to form coherent patterns. Because of the complexity of these interactions, the system as a whole may evolve over time in seemingly unpredictable ways as new patterns of behavior emerge. This metatheory has proven useful in understanding diverse phenomena in meteorology, population biology, statistical mechanics, economics, and cosmology. The book demonstrates how the dynamical systems perspective can be applied to theory construction and research in social psychology, and in doing so, provides fresh insight into such complex phenomena as interpersonal behavior, social relations, attitudes, and social cognition.

From the Back Cover:

A dynamical system is any fluctuating system in which the elements interact in complex, often nonlinear, ways to form coherent patterns. Many systems once thought to be chaotic are in fact dynamical systems whose interaction of elements and feedback processes are only now beginning to be understood. Hence, the study of dynamical systems is sometimes referred to as "chaos theory." This metatheory has proved useful in mechanics, economics, and cosmology. This book demonstrates how the dynamical systems perspective can explain such social psychological research phenomena as social relations, attitudes, social cognition, and interpersonal behavior.
Readers will first become familiar with what a dynamical system is, how it operates, and the methodology for studying such a system. The book then applies the dynamical system perspective to the study of specific topics in social behavior and social cognition. The book concludes with a discussion of the implications of dynamical systems theory for social psychological research and recommends other topics and issues in social psychology that may benefit from investigations using a dynamical system approach.
