SUMMARY

Psychology: The Adaptive Mind presents all the conventional content of an introductory book, but with a twist. Rather than beginning with theory or research, it begins each topic with an everyday example of a "problem" to be solved (for example, how to remember a telephone number; how we can "know" that a rattlesnakes rattle signals an event). In every chapter, Psychology: The Adaptive Mind "reframes" the subject matter of psychology by placing the major emphasis on how particular behaviors, cognitive processes, and emotions help people solve important adaptive problemsnot just survival problems, but everyday problems. For example, the principles of classical conditioning are introduced as "solutions" to the problem of how people learn about signals in their environment. By presenting the field of psychology in the context of adaptive problem solving", Psychology: The Adaptive Mind provides a distinctive and cohesive viewpoint that effectively organizes and integrates the material and makes it easy to learn from.Psychology The Adaptive Mind, 4 was published 2005 under ISBN 9780495031505 and ISBN 049503150X.
