Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding empowers you to apply scientific thinking to the psychology of your everyday life. Emphasizing the scientific method, the authors help you develop the critical-thinking skills and open-minded skepticism needed to distinguish psychological information from misinformation.

The 5th Edition reflects the latest developments in both society and the field of psychological science. New and updated topics include intelligence testing, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the replication crisis, the open science movement, and gender and identity.
