Provide the framework to go from inquiry to understanding
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.
