Provides the framework to go from inquiry to understanding.
Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding, 3/e, teaches students how to test their assumptions, and motivates them to use scientific thinking skills to better understand the field of psychology in their everyday lives. By applying scientific thinking, students can more intelligently evaluate claims about both laboratory research and daily life. In the end, students will emerge with the “psychological smarts,” or open-minded skepticism, needed to distinguish psychological misinformation from credible, useful psychological information.
MyPsychLab is an integral part of the Lilienfeld program. Engaging online activities and assessments provide a teaching and learning system that helps students become scientific thinkers. With MyPsychLab, students can watch videos on psychological research and applications, participate in virtual classic experiments, and develop critical thinking skills through writing.

Praise for Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding
“The authors speak directly to students without ever talking down to them or over their heads. This text should serve as the prototype for how to write for college students today.”
–John Bickford, University of Massachusetts

–Brian Johnson, University of Tennessee at Martin

–Laura Gruntmeier, Redlands Community College
“I like the way the authors relate to the reader. The authors do a great job of explaining what might be controversial and ask us to open our minds. They relate the content to our generation. It was easy to read.”

“If the chapters in our current psychology book were like the ones in Lilienfeld, I would actually read the book.”
–Chris Deery, student, Community College of Rhode Island
