Based on the bestselling text, Social Psychology, 10th Edition, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition succinctly explores social psychological science and its applications to contemporary issues and everyday life. Thirty-one short modules—each readable in a single sitting—introduce students to important social phenomena and to how scientists discover and explain such phenomena. Throughout, students are challenged to think critically about such issues as: • How does our thinking – both conscious and unconscious – drive our behavior? • What leads people sometimes to hurt and sometimes to help one another? • What kindles social conflict, and how can we transform closed fists into helping hands? Answering these and other questions, Exploring Social Psychology, 6th Edition expands our self-understanding and sensitizes us to the social forces that pull our strings.
