The book respects the various points of view within psychology while presenting the field as a whole. The traditional material found in an introductory psychology course is centered around six enduring questions. These are: Are the mind and body one entity, or are they separate and distinct? Do actions result from the exercise of free will, or are they determined? How do people obtain knowledge about the world around them? Which is more important in behavior, heredity or environment? How do people participate in groups without losing their individual identity? What aspects of behavior remain stable over time, and why or how do people change? These questions also serve as a common thread that weaves through the related chapters to provide a cohesive view of the discipline.
