"a NEW way to Teach Psychology!"

John Cacioppo and I are proud to introduce our new textbook: 

Discovering Psychology: The Science of Mind.

(available: March 2012)

      This is not your typical ‘modular’ textbook that treats each topic
      as a separate, stand-alone unit. In the spirit of the great 
      American psychologist William James, our textbook integrates the
      formerly disparate fields of psychology into an interrelated,
      breathing and living discipline. Just as we struggle to understand
      the nature of our being, we also study the ways we are nurtured
      and how this interaction of nature and nurture changes over
      time. We discuss how psychology is also one of the “hub
      sciences”–a major contributor to human knowledge and to our
      understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

      Here is how our publisher describes a recorded webinar with John
      Cacioppo in which he discusses this new approach:

      “We’d like to invite you to view author John Cacioppo’s recorded
       webinar on:

The Discipline of Psychology: How it’s changing,
              and implications for how psychology is now taught.
