|Module 19: Social Relations
|Module 19 begins with an explanation of attraction and what attracts people to
each other (Contrary to what many people think, simple
proximity to a person is the best predictor of attraction.) The module continues
with a discussion of romantic love.
|Next, altruism, or helping behavior, is covered. The module explains what
factors increase or decrease altruistic behavior. A detailed presentation is
given on prejudice and discrimination, including theories explaining prejudice.
|The module concludes with a discussion on aggression and cooperation. Various

researchers tried to increase cooperative behavior.
