In a concise and readable 16-chapter format, ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY, 7th Edition, incorporates the most effective features of the sixth edition along with the latest and most important research findings from psychological science. Combining extensive pedagogical support with an emphasis on active learning, the text challenges students to learn by doing -- to actively participate and to think about what they are learning rather than just passively read written information. The integrated pedagogical program helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Douglas Bernstein also shows how topics in psychology are interrelated and guides students in thinking critically -- including organizing select research studies around questions to help readers think objectively about research and results.

"In revising this book for the second time since its publication nineteen years ago, my purpose has not changed essentially. It may still be said that 'the aim of the volume is to present clearly the accepted facts of psychology.' Emphasis is still upon fact rather than theory. The book embodies the newest results, but does not turn its back upon the old. In the present edition the greater part has been entirely rewritten. Much new material has been added to the chapter on the Nervous System, to the discussion of vision, of memory, of emotion, and of fatigue. The treatment of the much mooted problem of instinct has been entirely revised. It has been brought forward to constitute the fourth chapter and appears as a discussion of how much is native in movement. Little has been left as innate save the control of learning through selection. This chapter is followed by one devoted to motor learning as seen in the animal work and the conditioned reflex, and that by another on association. A final chapter prepares the student for the divergences in point of view he will find in his later reading. This gives a very brief summary of the historical development of psychological theories, and a bare statement of the position of the more important schools at present struggling for recognition"--Preface.
