All human interactions are conditioned on social cognition and, in turn, influence social cognition: it is a core field in social psychology, and now it also overlaps social neuroscience, social and cognitive development, behavioural economics, health psychology, diversity science, and more. This four-volume collection brings together some of the most influential and important articles to have come out of the field over the past decades, as well as taking in modern developments which reflect just how vital the subject still is today. Volume One: Basic Concepts in Social Cognition Volume Two: Topics in Social Cognition: Self, Attributions, Heuristics, and Inferences Volume Three: Topics in Social Cognition: Cognitive Approaches to Attitudes, Stereotyping and Prejudice Volume Four: Beyond Cognition: Affect and Behaviour
