Social Psychology

Social psychology is the scientific study of the mind as both a product of, or embedded in, society, and as a causal factor and structurally necessary element in social dynamics and social relations respectively. Given it´s nature as a science, social psychology looks to organize all information which links the mind to society, to model the relationships between social entities and psychological entities, and to come up with predictive causal narratives regarding the relationship between mind and society. Because social psychology proceeds from a psychological perspective, the bias is towards causal narratives that emphasize the mind as a causal factor, or at the very least a mediating factor between society and organismal behavior.
