Not your grandparents’ social cognition: A family letter about progress through crisis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Widely acknowledged as the founders of psychological science, Wilhelm Wundt and William James might also qualify as ancestors to social cognition researchers. Among other themes, Wundt (1897) viewed humans as motivated, thinking subjects, and James (1913) viewed humans as pragmatic thinkers for action. In those broad senses, they are our intellectual forebears. Social cognition research has deep roots.
