Mapping the territory where political science and psychology intersect, Explorations in Political Psychology offers a broad overview of the the field of political psychology--from its historical evolution as an area of inquiry to the rich and eclectic array of theories, concepts, and methods that mark it as an emerging discipline. In introductory essays, editors Shanto Iyengar and William J. McGuire identify the points of exchange between the disciplines represented and discuss the issues that make up the subfields of political psychology. Bringing together leading scholars from social psychology and political science, the following sections discuss attitude research (the study of political attitudes and opinions); cognition and information-processing (the relationship between the structures of human information-processing and political and policy preferences); and decision making (how people make decisions about political preferences). As a comprehensive introduction to a growing field of interdisciplinary concern, Explorations in Political Psychology will prove a useful guide for historians, social psychologists, and political scientists with an interest in individual political behavior.

In recent decades, research in political psychology has illuminated the psychological processes underlying important political action, both by ordinary citizens and by political leaders. As the world has become increasingly engaged in thinking about politics, this volume reflects exciting new work by political psychologists to understand the psychological processes underlying Americans' political thinking and action. In 13 chapters, world-class scholars present new in-depth work exploring public opinion, social movements, attitudes toward affirmative action, the behavior of political leaders, the impact of the 9/11 attacks, and scientists' statements about global warming and gasoline prices. Also included are studies of attitude strength that compare the causes and consequences of various strength-related constructs. This volume will appeal to a wide range of researchers and students in political psychology and political science, and may be used as a text in upper-level courses requiring a scholarly and contemporary review of major issues in the field.

Fifty years after the publication of The Authoritarian Personality, the Frankfurt School account of fascism remains as controversial as ever. Passions and Convictions in Matters Political attempts to preserve the discoveries of the Frankfurt School while integrating them into a new psychoanalytic model of politics, which draws equally on Kleinian thought. Departing from a revised account of authoritarianism, the new model defines two more political positions: reconciled and alienated liberalism. Academics and scholars of political science and psychology will find Passions and Convictions in Matters Political an important resource.

Counterfactual Thought Experiments in World Politics

Logical, Methodological, and Psychological Perspectives

Political scientists often ask themselves what might have been if history had unfolded differently: if Stalin had been ousted as General Party Secretary or if the United States had not dropped the bomb on Japan. Although scholars sometimes scoff at applying hypothetical reasoning to world politics, the contributors to this volume--including James Fearon, Richard Lebow, Margaret Levi, Bruce Russett, and Barry Weingast--find such counterfactual conjectures not only useful, but necessary for drawing causal inferences from historical data. Given the importance of counterfactuals, it is perhaps surprising that we lack standards for evaluating them. To fill this gap, Philip Tetlock and Aaron Belkin propose a set of criteria for distinguishing plausible from implausible counterfactual conjectures across a wide range of applications. The contributors to this volume make use of these and other criteria to evaluate counterfactuals that emerge in diverse methodological contexts including comparative case studies, game theory, and statistical analysis. Taken together, these essays go a long way toward establishing a more nuanced and rigorous framework for assessing counterfactual arguments about world politics in particular and about the social sciences more broadly.

Mit dem Aufkommen der politischen Psychologie stehen politische Informationen und ihre Verarbeitung im Fokus des Interesses der Wahl- und Einstellungsforschung: Wie sieht das Informationsumfeld in modernen Demokratien aus, mit dem sich Menschen konfrontiert sehen? Welche Informationen nehmen Menschen aus dem vorhandenen Angebot wahr und wie verarbeiten sie diese? Welche Rolle spielen dabei Emotionen? Wie prägen Informationen und Emotionen die politischen Einstellungen der Bürger? Welche Verhaltenskonsequenzen gehen damit einher? Dieser Band beinhaltet – neben einem kompakten Überblick über den State of the Art – empirische Studien, die sich diesen Fragen im Detail widmen.

In den letzten Jahren hat die Verwendung psychologischer Theorien und Methoden in der Wahl- und Einstellungsforschung eine deutliche Verbreitung erfahren. Zentrale Fragen dieses Forschungsbereichs sind: Nutzen unterschiedliche Wählergruppen unterschiedliche Strategien der Informationsverarbeitung? Was kann die Nutzung unterschiedlicher Strategien erklären? Und welchen Einfluss haben unterschiedliche Wege der Informationswahrnehmung und -verarbeitung auf politische Einstellungen und Wahlentscheidungen? Der Band beschäftigt sich in acht Beiträgen unter anderem mit Wahrnehmungen politischer Akteure oder politischer Informationen, dem Einfluss der Persönlichkeit auf politische Einstellungen und politisches Verhalten, Bedrohungswahrnehmungen der Bürgerinnen und Bürger sowie mit Determinanten der Beurteilung politischer Akteure.

Politische Emotionen

Warum Liebe für Gerechtigkeit wichtig ist

Wie viel Gefühl verträgt eine Gesellschaft, die nach Gerechtigkeit strebt? Nicht viel, könnte man meinen und auf die Gefahren politischer Instrumentalisierung von Ängsten und Ressentiments verweisen. Emotionen, so eine verbreitete Ansicht, setzen das Denken außer Kraft und sollten deshalb keine Rolle spielen. Martha C. Nussbaum hingegen behauptet: um der Gerechtigkeit politisch zur Geltung zu verhelfen, bedarf es nicht nur eines klaren Verstandes, sondern auch einer positiv-emotionalen Bindung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger an die gemeinsame Sache. Manche sprechen von Hingabe, Nussbaum nennt es Liebe. Sie zeigt, welche Ausdrucksformen diese und verwandte politische Emotionen annehmen können und wie sie sich kultivieren lassen.

Politik als Lernprozess

Wissenszentrierte Ansätze der Politikanalyse

In den 1990er Jahren hat die internationale Politikwissenschaft verstärkt argumentative, interpretative, (sozial)konstruktivistische, kognitive und lerntheoretische Ansätze der Politikanalyse hervorgebracht. Diese haben die politische Funktion und Bedeutung von Wissen, Ideen und Argumentationen betont und im Detail untersucht. Das Buch bietet eine Zusammenschau und Bilanz dieser in der Bundesrepublik nur vereinzelt rezipierten Ansätze. Wissenszentrierte Politikanalysen legen nahe, Politik als argumentativ oder von neuen Erkenntnissen geprägten Lernprozess zu verstehen. Die gegenwartsdiagnostische Fragestellung lautet daher: - Befördert die aufziehende Wissensgesellschaft eine lernende Politik? - Ist Politik lernfähig? - Was heißt Lernen in politischen Kontexten?
