Summary/Abstract: The present research has been methodologically based on Moscovici's theory of social representations as well as on both dichotomy and systematic comparison of theories of instrumental and expressive aggression. Research main objective is to analyse representations of instrumental and expressive aggression at group and collective (respondents' cultural specific) level Group (emancipated) representations are investigated depending on factors as gender and group membership among a sample of 490 men and women from 7 social and occupational groups (pupils, students, policemen, teachers / lecturers, physicians, prisoners and aviators). Collective representations are analysed by means of comparing the respondents' overall results to data obtained from other cultural samples (English and American). Bulgarian adapted version of an instrument (EXPAGG), designed by Campbell et al. is used to measure respondents' instrumental and expressive representations of aggression.
