Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Liberally illustrated with photos, diagrams, and artwork, this clear and engagingly written textbook traces the development of psychology from its origins as a branch of philosophy to a present-day discipline closely allied with neurology and physiology.
Chapters center around questions such as "What and where is the mind?," "How and why do we think?," "Is knowledge innate or acquired," and "What makes you ‘you’?" Other topics include psychology as a science, structuralism, functionalism, sensation and perception, classical and operant conditioning, nature vs. nurture, abnormal psychology, and more. Sidebars augment the text with biographies of key figures, case studies, real-world applications of theories, and quotes.
