Challenging Assumptions. Just because we Ã¢â‚¬Å“thinkÃ¢â‚¬Â something doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make it true. FeistÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s accessible approach to science helps students challenge their assumptions, understand research, and recognize that in Psychology, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not all black and white.
Virtually all students enter Introductory Psychology with preconceived notionsÃ¢â‚¬â€many of them incorrect. Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is designed to move students beyond what may seem obvious to them, to have them reevaluate the thoughts and beliefs they bring to the course. Feist & Rosenberg challenge students: DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe everything you think! Students are encouraged to think critically and question preconceived notions, putting their ideasÃ¢â‚¬â€and the ideas of othersÃ¢â‚¬â€to the test and understand that no one perspective tells the whole story.
