Overview

This best-selling book on introductory psychology is headlined by the contributions of co-author Al Maisto, the Carnegie Foundation's College Professor of the Year. The close collaboration of master author Charles G. Morris with Al Maisto keeps Psychology: An Introduction at the cutting edge of the discipline through the use of relevant material and recent examples. Classic studies are carefully integrated with the most up-to-date research to provide readers with an accurate and current view of the field. The book presents introductory psychology as a science and as a diverse discipline, with a focus on critical thought and analysis of ideas—and a keen eye on how new technology can enhance the teaching and learning experience. Chapter topics include the biological basis of behavior, sensation and perception, consciousness, learning, memory, cognition and language, intelligence and mental abilities, motivation and emotion, life span development, personality, stress and health psychology, psychological disorders, therapies, and social psychology. For individuals looking for a thorough and appealing introduction to psychology.
