In PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, BRIEFER VERSION, Wayne Weiten continues his proven combination of a scientifically rigorous text with selective pedagogy that makes learning easy for students. Weiten’s approach is backed by a straightforward writing style, unparalleled in-text visuals and didactic art program, and in-book review to help users prioritize and retain the core concepts.

Weiten 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 users to the study of psychology by respecting their ability to master its fundamental concepts.

Weiten’s themes (including empiricism, theoretical diversity, sociohistorical contexts, multifactorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience) and variations provide unifying threads across chapters that help users see the connections among different research areas in psychology.


"The critical thinking application is a great way for the students to consider the prevalence of mental illness, and is well done."

"I have been favorable impressed with the (this) psychology textbook since its earliest editions. The book is ’user friendly’ and does an excellent job of introducing the student to the diverse and engaging field of psychology. This upcoming edition appears to continue and expand upon the excellent text now in use."

"I liked how Weiten tied in thory with research findings. For example, in the development chapter, the section ’Time of Turmoil’ was the first time I have seen an author successfully tie together the issues of suicide and violence during adolesence..."

"I also get the sense that Weiten truly had my community college students in mind when he wrote the material and developed the pedagogical aids."
