Abstract

Social interaction and social relations have each provided a central focus in social psychology since the field’s inception. Social interaction can take many forms, from parallel play to coordinated action and from nonverbal displays to the exchange of abstract ideas in words. Social relations, too, vary along several dimensions, including antagonism versus liking, equality versus dominance and submission, exchange versus communion, and empathy versus manipulation.
