Dynamic Social Impact and the Evolution of Social Representations: A Natural History of Stereotypes.
Schaller, Mark; Latane, Bibb
Journal of Communication, v46 n4 p64-77 Aut 1996
Shows how Dynamic Social Impact Theory (DSIT) and an evolutionary perspective offer new ways of understanding social representations through communication. Outlines the metatheoretical perspective that social representations emerge as structure in self-organizing systems. Explores ways in which DSIT might be further informed by the dynamic processes of biological self-organizing systems. (SR)
