9780155080447: Introduction to Psychology

Long considered a classic, the new edition of Hilgard's Introduction to Psychology continues the tradition. One of the most respected texts available, the authors have ensured consistent and cohesive coverage of the most recent developments and established theories. Readers are offered an in-depth view to psychological study through an approach that is easily accessible to the modern day student - continuing the tradition for stylistic clarity that has always been a particular strength of Introduction to Psychology. The thirteenth edition sees the complete integration of the biological and evolutionary perspective into the body of the text and focuses on providing students with up-to-date coverage of current topics. A new feature, Frontiers of Psychological Research, applies current research on topics being discussed in the text and prompt discussion and further reading. Also new are Contemporary Voices in Psychology boxes that present two essays from experts in the field stating their controversial positions on current cutting-edge topics in psychology today. Critical Thinking Questions, found at the end of every chapter, address current and/or everyday life issues and require students to consider the information supplied in the chapter, think reasonably and logically about the issues presented, and rely on their own personal experiences and ideas to arrive at the answer. Contributors include Judith Rich Harris, Elizabeth Loftus, Michael Bailey, and Alan Marlatt. Features: * This new edition captures the dynamic nature of contemporary psychology in three major ways: * 'Contemporary Voices in Psychology' boxes discuss controversial issues in specially commissioned essays in which experts address cutting-edge topics from opposing points of view. * Research is applied to real world problems in the 'Frontiers of Psychological Research' features. * The thirteenth edition takes a fresh biological orientation which is integrated into the body of the text, a trend that is changing the way psychological topics are viewed, exemplified by integrated bio-evolutionary research and coverage. New to this edition: * Further exciting new features of Hilgard's Introduction to Psychology: * A whole new art/design program to support the text. Based on the advice of specialists the book features sophisticated art and re-plotted graphs * Biology and evolution is now included throughout each chapter where appropriate; it is no longer separated out in boxes where the information can be overlooked. * Includes the latest material on Cognitive Neuropsychology * New Critical Thinking Questions are found at the end of every chapter, these questions address current or everyday life issues. They require that students consider the information supplied in the chapter, think reasonably and logically, and rely on their own personal experience and ideas to arrive at the answer. * New Key terms are now included at the end of each chapter with page references.
