Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding (Ebook)


By Scott O. Lilienfeld

Descripción:
Our goal in this text, therefore, is to empower student readers of the twenty-first century to apply scientific thinking to the psychology of their everyday lives. By applying scientific thinking— thinking that helps protect us against our tendencies to make mistakes— we can better evaluate claims about both laboratory research and daily life. In the end, we hope that students will emerge with the “psychological smarts,” or open-minded skepticism, needed to distinguish psychological misinformation from psychological information. We’ll consistently urge students to keep an open mind to new claims, but to insist on evidence.
