Shorter than Weiten's big book by almost 200 pages, PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, BRIEFER VERSION, SEVENTH EDITION offers a superb thematic organization together with practical applications and examples that help students see beyond research to big-picture concepts. Often described as a challenging book that is easy to learn from, PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS 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, socio-historical contexts, multi-factorial 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.
