Unknown - 2000 | Alternate ed. for Canada
Rate this:
A classic introduction to psychology, the new edition of Wortman & Loftus with new co-author Charles Weaver returns the text to its familiar place as an accessible and thorough text, deeply committed to the scientific approach to psychology. As was the case in previous editions this continues to be a sophisticated, no-nonsense, research-oriented text that features critical thinking through "In-Depth" analysis of research studies. Briefer than the more encyclopedic texts, it is also selective in its coverage and focuses on cutting edge cognitive and neuroscience research. The new edition incorporates a discussion of four key themes in psychology that act as a means of pulling together information from the various sub-fields and presenting a "Big Picture" of psychology. What is the Alternate Edition for Canada? It is the presentation of the vital research in psychology, regardless of the country of origin, within a Canadian context. Through our market research and reviews, we discovered that instructors want their students exposed to the essential studies that have shaped the discipline. However, their students would relate better to the material if Canadian examples, statistics and stories were used to illuminate the concepts.
