Description

This innovative text uses an integrative theme, levels of analysis, to help students make sense of psychology, its subdisciplines, and its relationship to other fields of study. In every chapter, Goldstein shows students how behavioral, cognitive, biological, and contextual levels of analysis, and their dynamic interplay, contribute to an understanding of the complexity of human behavior. More focused on integrating information than any other text currently available, Goldstein's text presents a coherent overview of a very diverse academic discipline, helps students see the relevance of the science of psychology to their everyday life experiences, and helps them develop the capacity to think critically about psychological claims.show more
