A thematic approach focused on the enduring issues in psychology
Understanding Psychology, now in its eleventh edition, continues to present a scientific, accurate, and thorough overview of the essential concepts of psychology. Throughout the text, authors Charles Morris and Albert Maisto write clearly and accessibly about the discipline and its concrete, real-life applications. By highlighting five enduring issues that cut across and unite all subfields of psychology – Person—Situation, Nature—Nurture, Stability—Change, Diversity—Universality, and Mind—Body – Understanding Psychology helps students see the surprising unity and coherence of this diverse and exciting science.
