Overview

The first major text to treat psychology as a science, this book revolutionized the field of introductory psychology upon its debut in 1981. Henry Gleitman is joined by two noted scholars, Daniel Reisberg and Alan Fridlund, to produce this exciting new edition. Every chapter in the book has been updated with fully integrated coverage of the issues at the forefront of today's science, specifically neuroscience and the brain, evolutionary psychology, and culture. In addition, a new appendix on research methods has been added, focusing on the logic of psychological research and encouraging readers to think critically about "evidence" they encounter in their daily lives.
