Summary

For courses in Introductory Psychology
 
A thematic approach to the enduring issues in psychology
Revel™ Understanding Psychology
highlights five enduring issues to help students see the surprising unity and coherence of this diverse and exciting science. By walking students through issues that cut across and unite all subfields of psychology — Person–Situation, Nature–Nurture, Stability–Change, Diversity–Universality, and Mind–Body — authors Charles Morris and Albert Maisto help students understand both the essential concepts and the concrete, real-life applications of the discipline. The 12th Edition offers updated references and examples as well as fresh interactive content in Revel that brings course material to life.

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.

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.

He is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society.

Morris has written more than two-dozen books, numerous articles, and more than thirty papers and presentations. His books include Psychology: An Introduction, Understanding Psychology, Basic Psychology, Psychology: Concepts and Applications, Psychology: The Core, and Contemporary Psychology and Effective Behavior.

His early research centered on leadership, group interaction, and group problem solving. More recently, his publications and presentations have focused on various aspects of undergraduate education, on contemporary views of leadership, and on the "Big 5" personality traits.

Albert A. Maisto, the Carnegie Foundation's U.S. Professor of the Year for 1997–1998, is the Bonnie E.
