Abstract:

The Discovering Psychology telecourse and educational video series first premiered in 1990 as a visual resource for teaching introductory psychology. The 26 programs review the history of the field, including the work of early and contemporary theorists, practitioners, and researchers, illustrating their work with footage of classic experiments and modern studies. They tell the story of psychology through demonstrations, classic experiments and simulations, current research, documentary footage, and computer animation all based on extensive investigation and superior scholarship. The updated edition, released in 2001, highlights major new developments in the field, and new areas of inquiry by the leading researchers. Leading researchers, practitioners, and theorists probe the mysteries of the mind and body.
