PS 345 Social Motivation (Fall/Spring: 3)
How do other people affect our motivation to act? Psychology has given too
much emphasis to extrinsic rewards and too little to the ways in which our
relationships with others determine our choices, feelings, and thoughts.
Many of our behaviors are motivated primarily by our relationships with
others. In this course we will explore the influence of others on our behavior.
Topics to be considered include kindness and cruelty, cooperation and competition,
and conformity and rebellion.
