Appraisal theory, the dominant theoretical approach for understanding emotion elicitation, has often been criticized for taking an intrapersonal approach for understanding emotion, which is clearly a highly social, interpersonal phenomenon. In the present chapter the authors examine and illustrate two distinct ways that appraisal theory already touches upon, and can be further developed to better encompass, social factors. First, they examine the contributions appraisal theory has made, and continues to make, to our understanding of the information encoded in, and thus communicated through, emotional facial expression. Second, they explore and describe the contributions of several social factors to the generation of emotion-eliciting appraisals, and thus the need to more formally incorporate these social factors into an increasingly interpersonal appraisal theory.

Keywords:   Sociality, Emotion Elicitation, Appraisal Theory, Facial Expression
