Emotion and Adaptation

Richard S. Lazarus

  • Lazarus is the author of some 16 books and has long been a leading figure in the development of stress and emotion theory.
  • This book represents his "position paper" on a theory of emotion that he has pioneered over the last 40 years.
  • Emotion is seen to play a complex, central role in an individual's lifelong efforts to survive, flourish, and achieve.
  • Controversial and with wide appeal, this is certain to be one of OUP's most important psychology titles.
