Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: USed book in great condition. There are a few notes inside. In PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, BRIEFER VERSION, Sixth Edition, Weiten continues his proven combination of a scientifically rigorous text with selective pedagogy that makes learning easy for students. Weiten's approach is backed by a straightforward writing style, unparalleled in-text visuals and didactic art program, and in-book review to help students prioritize and retain the core concepts. Wayne Weiten surveys psychology's broad range of content with three aims: to illuminate the process of research and its intrinsic relationship to application (THEMES); to show both the unity and diversity of the subject (VARIATIONS), and to invite students to the study of psychology by respecting their ability to master its fundamental concepts. Weiten's Themes and Variations provide unifying threads across chapters that help students to see the connections among different research areas in psychology. Integrative themes-including empiricism, theoretical diversity, sociohistorical contexts, multifactorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience-are woven throughout the text to provide connections among the different areas of research in psychology. The book's dynamic, teaching-oriented illustration program further enhances these themes. Weiten reinforces concepts through exercises that appear at the end of every chapter. At the same time, the author presents topics in a hierarchical manner, giving students handles they can use to prioritize concepts within the chapter.
