9780070586529: Psychology: Science & Understanding

Psychology: Science & Understanding is the first Introductory Psychology textbook that provides full in-depth coverage of the biological factors in behavior without sacrificing environmental factors. As part of this biological and evolutionary emphasis neurophysiology is covered, with relevant figures, in every chapter of the book. Scholarly, up to date coverage of current research, theory and applications is presented in the context of classic ideas and well established bodies of evidence. In addition, the book has a clear emphasis on the future of psychology as a discipline. Every chapter contains a 21st Century box that extrapolates on existing scientific theory and research to allow for a reasonable projection of likely future research and application in that area. Barry Smith’s Psychology: Science & Understanding is a winning combination of scientific rigor, engaging and clear explanation, and up to date research that will set a new standard for introductory psychology textbooks.

Barry Smith’s Psychology: Science & Understanding sets the new standard in the balance of biology and environment for students of Introductory Psychology. Smith brings the true science of psychology to the introductory course for the first time and does so in a way that students will understand and be inspired.
