About

Overview

In this fresh new offering to the Intro Psychology course, authors John Cacioppo and Laura Freberg portray psychology as being an integrative science in two ways. First, they have written a text that reflects psychology's rightful place as a hub science that draws from and is cited by research in many other fields. Second, this text presents psychology as a unified science that seeks a complete understanding of the human mind, rather than as a loosely organized set of autonomous subspecialties. As psychology moves rapidly toward maturity as an integrative, multidisciplinary field, the introductory course offers an opportunity to teach all of psychology in one place and at one time. This text reflects that evolution--and the authors' excitement about it.

Features and Benefits

  • Exploration of seven integrative perspectives (biological, evolutionary, cognitive, developmental, social/social neuroscientific, personality/individual differences, and clinical).
  • Psychology as a Hub Science broadens the discussion of a topic to include ways in which psychology is engaged in cooperative science with other disciplines--helping undergraduates to see how what they are learning in Intro Psychology will help them no matter what they major in.
  • Unique chapter prologues that show big picture and micro views of the chapter topic; providing a window into how the integration of psychology as a science provides a larger perspective for the psychologist.
  • "Interpersonal Relationships From a [Chapter Topic] Perspective" features how the many perspectives of psychology contribute to the understanding of a single human behavior--building and maintaining significant social relationships.
  • "Connecting to Research" highlights classic and contemporary studies relevant to chapter material to illustrate the connection between scientific research and the material in the textbook.
  • "Experiencing Psychology" provides hands-on, experiential activities for the student.
  • "Thinking Scientifically" models critical-thinking skills by providing students with an opportunity to critique a piece of research.
  • "Visual Summary Tables" present key chapter concepts at the end of each major section, with visual cues to help students remember and learn.
  • Margin application features provide quick one or two sentence examples of applications of a topic to reinforce context and relevance. For example, Botox is discussed in the context of acetylcholine in the biological psychology chapter.
