Skrócony opis:

The aim of classes is to present up-to-date knowledge about analysis of human behaviors in the cultural, political and economic contexts. The coverage of topics will be related to cross-cultural psychology and political psychology. I focus on presenting issues related to dimensions of culture, cultural values and inter-group relations. During classes I plan to present the most popular theories related to cross-cultural psychology including the newest findings in the field, like belief in life in zero-sum game or collective NARC model. As cross-cultural and political psychology researcher I will discuss also the findings from three international projects conducted by our team on entitlement and values (carried out in 28 countries), entitlement and subjective well-being (carried out in 42 countries) and entitlement, narcissism and self-esteem (carried out in 54 countries).
