Summary

Provide the framework to go from inquiry to understanding
Revel™ Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding empowers students to apply scientific thinking to the psychology of their everyday lives. Authors Scott Lilienfeld, Steven Lynn, and Laura Namy introduce six principles of scientific thinking that serve as a clear framework for learning about psychology. As a result of this emphasis on the scientific method, the text helps students develop the critical thinking skills and open-minded skepticism needed to distinguish psychological misinformation from psychological information. In order to provide an up-to-date survey of the field, the Fourth Edition has been updated with the latest findings, coverage of fresh debates and challenges to psychology, and new sections on emerging areas of research.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
