PI Lecture with Marcel Brass, “Social agency”
Abstract: Sense of agency (SOA) refers to the experience of controlling one’s
own actions and corresponding effects. Social agency refers to SOA in situations
where other social agents are involved. This can refer to situations in which we
act together or in the presence of other agents or to situations where we
control the behaviour of others. I will discuss the concept of social agency and
its relevance for topics such as collective behaviour and human-machine
interaction. Furthermore, I will provide some empirical examples of
investigating social agency.
