Description

Keith Oatley and Jennifer M. Jenkins' best-selling book on the psychology of emotions is the most highly regarded and engaging text for the emotions course. While retaining its interdisciplinary breadth, historical insights, and engaging format, this new edition adds the expertise of outstanding researcher and dedicated teacher Dacher Keltner. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research and developments in emotions and includes the following features: cohesive synthesis of evolutionary and cultural approaches to emotion; new chapters on communication of emotion, bodily changes, and appraisal; and, increased emphasis on interpersonal implications of emotions, including studies of newly discovered expressions and systems of communication.This title also includes: new coverage on moral judgment, individual differences, gene-environment interactions, and positive emotions; new coverage of subjective well-being and pro-social emotions like gratitude and compassion; updated references throughout that reflect current research and data, including research on affective neuroscience; and, a new design and pedagogical features that include new integrated boxes that depict historical landmarks and historical figures, updated tables, boldfaced terms, and end-of-chapter summaries. There is an Instructor's Manual with lecture notes and teaching tips that is available upon request.
