The sixth Canadian edition of Psychology: Themes and Variations maintains its hallmark strengths while addressing recent changes in the field, including references to almost 1,000 new articles and scholarly works. Engaging, relevant narrative frames contemporary examples that will capture and maintain the attention of anyone studying psychology in Canada. The text continues to provide a unique survey of psychology that meets three goals: to demonstrate the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, to illuminate the research process and its link to application, and to make the material challenging and thought-provoking yet easy to learn. Weiten, McCann, and Hunt Matheson deliver a successful balance of scientific authoritativeness and a student-friendly approach through the integration of seven unifying themes, an unparalleled didactic art program, real-life examples, and a streamlined set of learning aids that help students see beyond research to big-picture concepts.
