“The Handbook of Psychology of Emotions, Volume 2”, is a timely, comprehensive, and authoritative edition consisting of chapters by an eminent group of international emotion researchers who provide a cutting-edge overview of all major aspects of human emotions. In addition to reviewing the current state of the art in a number of main research areas related to the topic of emotion, the authors present squarely an outlook for the future research on emotion.

Volume 2 includes the following four sections: Section One presents a comprehensive examination of the rule and impact of emotions in economical settings, specifically at the workplace, discussing the impact of individual differences, the role of emotions in the construction and enactment of doctor managers’ identities, issues related to emotional labor, emotional exhaustion in human service jobs, the effects of emotional labor on strain, the role of emotions on group performance, emotions and price satisfaction, and the link between emotion and money.

Section Two focuses on the evolution of empathy, empathy gaps and decisions, and on the neuropsychology of emotional and cognitive mechanisms in decision making. Section Three provides an examination of the association between emotions, morals, and values. It comprises a chapter on emotions and self-integrity, a chapter on moral emotions and prosocial behavior and a chapter on the implementation of emotions in artificial entities. The final Section Four deals with emotion and music providing a chapter on music as the language of emotion and a chapter on the link between emotions, mood, and musical preferences. (Imprint: Nova)
