Richard Lazarus


Richard S. Lazarus (March 3, 1922 – November 24, 2002) was an American psychologist who began rising to prominence in the 1960s, when behaviorists like B. F. Skinner held sway over psychology and explanations for human behavior were often pared down to rudimentary motives like reward and punishment. A ''Review of General Psychology'' survey, published in 2002, ranked Lazarus as the 80th most cited psychologist of the 20th century.

He was well renowned for his theory of cognitive-mediational theory within emotion. Provided by Wikipedia
