Abstract

This paper reviews research on apologies, considering research goals and results in assessing the ‘maturity’ of apology research. It is argued that such research needs to progress beyond a descriptive goal to an explanatory goal in terms of the underlying cultural assumptions that inform the perception of contextual factors which in turn inform apology behavior. © 1998 Wiley.
