The Nature and Scope of Social Psychology.

The Nature and Scope of Social Psychology.


This chapter on the nature and scope of social psychology begins by discussing the social psychology of planes and currents. It then considers the relation of social psychology to sociology proper. Next it describes how a common environment or experience does not product social planes. The chapter contends that race traits are not social planes, and that planes arise from interactions. The chapter shows that social psychology explains both society and the individual. The remainder of the chapter discusses divisions, how planes of sentiment regarding slavery formed, factors in the formation of religious planes, and imitation vs. affinity.
