For courses in Introductory Psychology
Where great science and great teaching meet
Psychology: Core Concepts , Eighth Edition provides rich coverage of the foundational topics taught for introductory psychology. Award-winning authors Philip Zimbardo, Robert Johnson, and Vivian McCann make the material meaningful and memorable for students. Each major section of every chapter is organized around a single core concept. The core concepts allow readers to draw connections across the chapter and to see the big picture of psychology. Learning is then reinforced through focused application and critical-thinking activities. The Eighth Edition introduces many new and exciting developments in psychology, such as the exploding field of epigenetics, initiatives to develop brain-based alternatives to the DSM-5, and Bandura’s theory of moral disengagement.
NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.
Psychology: Core Concepts, Eighth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
