Just because we “think” something doesn’t make it true. Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is designed to move students beyond what may seem obvious to them and have them reevaluate the thoughts and beliefs they bring to the course. Feist’s accessible approach to science helps students challenge their assumptions, understand research, and recognize that in Psychology, no one perspective tells the whole story.
Challenging assumptions is the first step in thinking scientifically. While building a foundation in the concepts and principles of psychology, Psychology: Perspectives and Connections encourages students to think critically and question preconceived notions, putting their ideas—and the ideas of others—to the test.
