Introduction

In this chapter we shall look at a number of selected areas to give you a flavour of how social cognition has been investigated with respect to child development, extended to new theoretical and practical developments with respect to terror management theory and everyday communications, and applied to the contexts of health and sport. We will only ‘dip in’ to each of these areas, but it is hoped that sufficient information is provided to ‘whet your appetite’ and so motivate you to explore more fully one or more areas for yourself.

Probably the best way to use this chapter is to regard the three major sections as extensions of the earlier chapters in this book. Hence, pages 128-31, 139-41 and 141-4 on attribution are best read after Chapters 2 and 3; pages 130-31 after Chapter 4; and pages after Chapter 5.
