It demonstrates the integration between thoughts, feelings, motivations, social behavior, etc. Revised to include up-to-date research and a more balanced coverage with four new perspectives - psychodynamics, behavioral, cognitive, and evolutionary - introduced in depth to allow readers to begin conceptualizing psychological data.
