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.

Review:

"Vallacher and Nowak's Dynamical Systems in Social Psychology presents an attempt at overcoming the ambivalent relationship between theory and phenomena that has haunted psychology for so long. The collection of essays addresses the problems of social psychology in particular, but much of what the authors are saying applies easily to other fields in psychology... Probably for the first time in social psychology, Vallacher and Nowak have brought together a number of authors who try to establish a link between the concepts and tools of dynamic systems on the one hand and the problems, data, and theories of social psychology on the other... The book, probably the first of its kind, provides a very interesting, accessible and informative introduction to a new and exciting approach to social psychology." --PAUL VAN GEERT, University of Groningen, The Netherlands, in SCIENCE
