Time pervades every aspect of people's lives. We are all affected by remnants of our pasts, assessments of our presents, and forecasts of our futures. Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors over time inexorably intertwine and intermingle, determining varied reactions such as affect andemotions, as well as future behaviors. The purpose of this volume is to bring together the diverse theory and research of an outstanding group of scholars whose work relates to peoples judgements over time. To date, much theory and research on temporal variables within psychology has remainedsomewhat fragmented, isolated, and even provincial--researchers in particular domains are either unaware of or are paying little attention to each other's work. Integrating the theory and research into a single volume will bring about a greater awareness and appreciation of conceptual relationsbetween seemingly disparate topics, define and promote the state of scientific knowledge in these areas, and set the agenda for future work. The volume presents the two main ways of looking at judgments over time: looking at how people's thoughts about the future and the past affect their presentstates, and looking at the interplay over time among people's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Editorial Reviews

"Judgments Over Time succeeds in its goal to inform scholars of various areas of relevant theory and research, to integrate ideas, and ultimately to advance thinking about issues over time. The book provides useful reviews of literature in seemingly disparate areas, and so integratesdiscussion about thinking over time, which goes across very diverse literatures and can enable readers to think more creatively and engage in asking interdisciplinary, multifaceted questions. As the editors point out, the ultimate success of the book will be found in its ability to stimulatereaders to develop further research." --PsycCRITIQUES
