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.

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.

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.

This book intends to harvest insights from the discipline of Psychology, in its broad understanding, for application to International Relations. Although Psychology offers an abundance of theories that are useful for this purpose, they have so far remained largely untapped. In chapters on conflict, hegemony, terrorism, mental health, global consciousness, and peace proposals, Byer provides a synthesis of these two complimentary disciplines. This innovative volume presents the first contribution to the new discipline of International Political Psychology.

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?

Der vorliegende Band ist der siebte in der Reihe der von den beiden Herausgebern betreuten Buchpublikationen zu Bundestagswahlen und widmet sich der Bundestagswahl 1994. Die inzwischen selbstverständlich gewordene Kontinuität wahlsoziologischer Datenbasen gestattet auch diesmal zwei Schwerpunktsetzungen. Acht der insgesamt 19 Buchkapitel behandeln in unterschiedlichen konzeptionellen wie methodischen Zugängen das Verhalten bei der Bundestagswahl 1994. Weitere acht Kapitel spannen hingegen den analytischen Bogen zeitlich wie sachlich weiter und widmen sich der längsschnittlichen Analyse des Wahlverhaltens in Deutschland, so z. B. den Fragen, ob die Bedeutung des Kanzlerkandidaten für die Wahlentscheidung tatsächlich zugenommen hat und in welcher Weise sich die Bilder verändert haben, die sich die Bürger von den politischen Parteien machen. Insgesamt vermittelt dieser Band aus dem gegebenen Anlaß der Bundestagswahl 1994 einen Einblick sowohl in die Kontinuitäten als auch in die Öffnung der deutschen Wahlsoziologie für neue Problemstellungen.

"[Authors] examine the massive changes to our political system brought about by the rise of television since the 1950s. The authors start by describing the workings of the media, and then they analyze the effects of television on both politicians and voters. They combine striking experimental and survey data with behind-the-scenes examples culled from national and state politics." --P. [4] of cover.

The Oxford Handbook of Political Ideologies

Author: Michael Freeden,Lyman Tower Sargent,Marc Stears

Publisher: OUP Oxford

Category: Political Science

Page: 752

View: 8213

This is the first comprehensive volume to offer a state of the art investigation both of the nature of political ideologies and of their main manifestations. The diversity of ideology studies is represented by a mixture of the range of theories that illuminate the field, combined with an appreciation of the changing complexity of concrete ideologies and the emergence of new ones. Ideologies, however, are always with us. The Handbook is divided into three sections: The first is divided into three sections: The first reflects some of the latest thinking about the development of ideology on an historical dimension, from the standpoints of conceptual history, Marx studies, social science theory and history, and leading schools of continental philosophy. The second includes some of the most recent interpretations and theories of ideology, all of which are sympathetic in their own ways to its exploration and close investigation, even when judiciously critical of its social impact. This section contains many of the more salient contemporary accounts of ideology. The third focuses on the leading ideological families and traditions, as well as on some of their cultural and geographical manifestations, incorporating both historical and contemporary perspectives. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, bringing the latest approaches and understandings to their task. The Handbook will position the study of ideologies in the mainstream of political theory and political analysis and will attest to its indispensability both to courses on political theory and to scholars who wish to take their understanding of ideologies in new directions.

Politische Emotionen

Warum Liebe für Gerechtigkeit wichtig ist

Author: Martha C. Nussbaum

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3518737422

Category: Philosophy

Page: 596

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.
