Communication and Affect: A Comparative Approach.
Alloway, Thomas, Ed.; And Others
These seven original essays by noted behavioral scientists were prepared for a symposium held at Eridale College (University of Toronto), and concern the causes, functions, and dysfunctions of human affective communication. The empirical findings and theoretical statements in the essays provide a framework for development of a psychological approach to the affective communication problems. Topics of the essays are: sex differences in development of affective relationships in rhesus monkeys, methodological and theoretical problems in research on behavioral development, the development of skill in using language-like symbolic systems in young chimpanzees and deaf children, nonlinguistic affective communication in young rodents and dogs, and the affective response of young adults to aesthetic stimuli and to machines.
