This innovative text examines psychological concepts from the levels of the brain, the person, and the social world in order to help students actively apply psychology to their lives. Through their own research, clinical work, and experiences as teachers, Stephen Kosslyn and Robin Rosenberg have found that exploring psychology from multiple perspectives further enhances learning. Examining psychological concepts from the levels of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings) and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) and their interactions helps students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters and actively apply psychology to their lives. The second edition has an increased emphasis on the process of psychological research so that students can better appreciate the science of psychology. The Second Edition includes an additional chapter devoted to research methods (Ch. 2) and a new in-text feature called "Understanding Research."
