Overview

Since the first edition of this book appeared, professors have praised Weiten's scholarship as exemplary and the accessibility of his prose as unparalleled. PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS redefined the way Introductory Psychology is taught by using integrative themes to develop the connections among different areas of psychological research. In this revitalized and thoroughly updated Fifth Edition, not only has Weiten continued to refine and improve the scholarship, outstanding art program, and readability of the text, but he has also added a new critical thinking feature to each chapter. This critical thinking feature is designed to encourage students to examine the process of effective questioning and analysis of key issues in psychology.

Using integrative themes to emphasize connections among different areas of research in psychology, and built from the ground up using original sources, Weiten challenges students to grapple with the big issues and tough questions while mastering the basic concepts of psychology. Throughout the Fifth Edition, Weiten emphasizes the unity in psychology's intellectual heritage (the themes), as well as psychology's immense diversity (the variations). Offering the strongest integration of technology aids for students and instructors, Weiten's text includes icon links to the innovative PSYK.TREK CD-ROM, providing students with a powerful way to explore psychological concepts through experiments, interactivities, animation, audio, video, and printable quizzing.
