"From stellar editors and contributors, this superb volume draws attention to the significance of cognitive consistency as a basic principle of social information processing. Chapters cover a remarkable range: the significance of cognitive consistency for neural processes; connectionist models; different types of cognitive, motivational, implicit, and interpersonal processes; and connections to thinking, reasoning, decision making, and choice. This book is an absolute 'must' for researchers and doctoral students in psychology. It presents an intriguing, inviting, integrated perspective that bridges traditional subdisciplinary boundaries in psychology."--Gün R. Semin, PhD, Academy Professor, Royal Netherlands Academy for Arts and Sciences, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands
"Cognitive consistency has been an implicit if not explicit construct in social psychology for over 60 years, cutting across both motivated reasoning and automaticity and playing a role in all phases of information processing, including attention and comprehension, information retrieval, inference and judgment, and behavioral decision making. This volume--edited and written by well-known psychologists with perspectives ranging from cognitive neuroscience to interpersonal relations--testifies to the breadth of issues to which consistency principles are potentially relevant. In combination, the chapters provide a valuable resource for cognitive and social psychologists and graduate students."--Robert S. Wyer, Jr., PhD, Department of Marketing, Chinese University of Hong Kong
