A thematic approach focused on the enduring issues in psychology
Understanding Psychology, now in its eleventh edition, continues to present a scientific, accurate, and thorough overview of the essential concepts of psychology.

By highlighting five enduring issues that cut across and unite all subfields of psychology — Person–Situation, Nature–Nurture, Stability–Change, Diversity–Universality, and Mind–Body — Understanding Psychology helps students see the surprising unity and coherence of this diverse and exciting science.

Charles G. Morris received his B.A. from Yale University (1962) and his M.A. (1964) and Ph.D. (1965) in psychology from the University of Illinois. He joined the University of Michigan in 1965 where he served until his retirement in 2002.

From 1972—1977 he served as Associate Dean in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. From 1980—1990, he served as Associate Chair of the Department of Psychology. Upon his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Emeritus Professor.
