One of the key fundamental areas of study in the marketing arena, including public relations, is consumer behavior. In the context of PR, you can substitute "consumer" for "publics".

 

In a very broad sense, it's important to understand the interplay between emotion and logic when attempting to influence attitudes and behaviors.
