Just as they broke new ground with Psychology by being the first to integrate gender, culture, and critical thinking into an introductory text, Carol Tavris and Carole Wade once again set a new standard with this exciting alternative. Psychology in Perspective, 2/e, responds to the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Project 2061, which calls upon all scientists to teach for depth of understanding rather than breadth of coverage. The authors have reorganized the traditional material according to the five major perspectives in the field: biological, learning, cognitive, sociocultural, and psychodynamic. They offer an unbiased presentation of each perspective's strengths, limitations, and misuses, and, drawing on the metaphor of the "blind men and the elephant," they emphasize the importance of understanding all five approaches in order to grasp the "big picture" of human experience.
