Essential Thinkers, Classic Theories, and How They Inform Your World
In the first part of the book, "The Canon," four- to six-page entries (with key terms highlighted in bold) cover 37 great thinkers from Rene Descartes to Philip Zimbardo. Each entry has three parts: "Big Idea," "Then What?" (impact of the idea), and "What About Me?" (real-world applications). The book’s second part, "Definitions," provides very brief summaries of major schools of thought plus a brief survey of abnormal psychology.
