Counter The objective of this book is to provide an informative, scholarly yet readable overview of recent advances on judgmental research, and to offer a closer integration between implicit, subconscious, and explicit conscious judgmental mechanisms. The chapters draw on the latest research on social cognition, evolutionary psychology, neuropsychology and personality dynamics to achieve this objective. The contributions offer important new insights into the way everyday judgmental processes operate and are organizd into three sections, dealing with 1) fundamental influences on judgmental processes, 2) the role of cognitive and intra-psychic mechanisms in social judgments and 3) the role of social and interpersonal variables in judgments. The book is written in a readable yet scholarly style, and researchers, practitioners and students both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level should find it an engaging overview of the field.
