Product description

Students often get lost in the details ...most will never take a second psychology course ...they often have trouble relating the material to their everyday lives...The new Fourth Edition of Kowalski & Westen's Psychology addresses these teaching challenges. The student develops evaluative reasoning through self-discovery for a lifetime of learning. Students are drawn into the material in a way that in-trigues and stimulates so they begin to see psychology at work in their daily lives. Like its predecessors, this new edition effectively captures the diversity and breadth of psychology. A complete overview of how human beings think, feel, and behave is included. Psychology is an evolving science, which continually addresses and re-addresses the relationship between psychological events and their neural underpinnings, between cognition and emotion, be-tween cultural processes and human evolution, between nature and nurture, and more.
