Psychology: Core Concepts

The Discovering Psychology Edition

Psychology: Core Concepts has been a best-seller through five editions. Its focus on the key questions and core concepts of psychology—along with a wealth of high-interest features such as "Psychology in Your Life," "Using Psychology to Learn Psychology," and "Do It Yourself" boxes—has given students the tools and the motivation to master introductory psychology.

Now, this well loved text is available in this special edition tied to the award-winning "Discovering Psychology" video series, produced by WGBH Boston with the American Psychological Association. Author Phil Zimbardo narrates the video series, as leading researchers, practitioners, and theorists probe the mysteries of the mind and body and bring psychology to life for introductory students.

Psychology: Core Concepts: The Discovering Psychology Edition offers the same content as the Fifth Edition, and adds a built in Discovering Psychology viewing guide at the end of each chapter. Each new copy of this text comes packaged—at no additional cost­—with access to MyPsychLab, an online tool that includes links to the "Discovering Psychology" videos, as well as interactive viewing activities tied to the videos. Students can go to MyPsychLab to launch the videos and then either complete the viewing activities in their textbook or do the assignments online. There's also an Index of Multimedia that makes it easy for instructors to find and launch specific video segments for classroom presentation.

Meet the Author

Philip G. Zimbardo

Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D., Stanford University professor, has been teaching the Introductory Psychology course for nearly 50 years and has been writing the basic text for this course, as well as the Faculty Guides and Student Workbooks, for the past 35 years. In addition, he has helped to develop and update the PBS-TV series, Discovering Psychology, which is used in many high school and university courses both nationally and internationally. He has been called the "Face and Voice of Psychology" because of this popular series and his other media presentations.

He has published more than 300 professional and popular articles and chapters and 50 books of all kinds. He is currently engaged in writing a trade book on the psychology of evil that relates his classic Stanford Prison Experiment to the abuses at Iraq's Abu Ghraib Prison.

Robert L. Johnson

Robert Johnson, Ph.D., taught introductory psychology for 28 years at Umpqua Community College. He is especially interested in applying psychological principles to the teaching of psychology and in encouraging linkages between psychology and other disciplines. In keeping with those interests, Bob founded the Pacific Northwest Great Teachers Seminar, of which he was the director for 20 years. He was also one of the founders of Psychology Teachers at Community Colleges, serving as its executive committee chair during 2004. That same year he also received the Two-Year College Teaching Award given by the Society for the Teaching of Psychology. Bob has long been active in APA, APS, the Western Psychological Association, and the Council of Teachers of Undergraduate Psychology.

Aside from his contributions as coauthor of Psychology: Core Concepts, Bob is particularly proud of his articles in Teaching of Psychology. Recently he began a term as editor of The General Psychologist, the newsletter of the Society for General Psychology (Division 1 of APA). And, he is working on a book that brings to light what Shakespeare had to say about psychology.

Bob and his wife live on the North Umpqua River in Southern Oregon, where they can go kayaking in their front yard or bicycling in the valleys of the Cascade Mountains. In his spare time he likes making pottery and Thai curries.

Ann L. Weber

Ann L. Weber, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where for almost three decades she has taught General Psychology, Social Psychology, and the Psychology of Close Relationships, among other courses. She came to UNCA after completing her undergraduate work at The Catholic University of America and graduate work at The Johns Hopkins University. Psychology: Core Concepts is one of her many student-oriented texts and study guides, in addition to scores of books and other writings on close relationships, loss, and grief. As a consultant, she conducts workshops on subjects from managing stress and surviving breakups to learning humor and perspective from relationships with pets. Her many recognitions for teaching include UNCA's Distinguished Teacher Award and the Outstanding Teacher Award from the International Association for Relationship Research. Currently she is writing and developing courses on psychology in film and the relationships between people and animals. She and her husband live in the mountains of western North Carolina with five cats, two dogs, and a steady stream of fostered companion animals.
