This book provides simple, clear, in-depth explanations of all the topics in the AQA GCSE specification 4180 syllabus but it will prove invaluable to students at many levels on many courses and to the independent reader. It can be used as a stand-alone home study course, as a classroom text, as a reference text or just for pleasure for those who love to think about what makes people tick. Psychology describes up-to-date research as well as some classic psychology studies and even debunks one or two psychology research myths. It leads the reader through all the topics in the syllabus as a teacher would in a classroom setting. Topics are presented as a series of lessons followed by "Check Your Understanding" sections, which are designed to help you check and retain the information in each lesson. An assessment record provided at the end of the book will help you keep track of your progress. Lessons are interactive with many opportunities to jot down your thoughts and reactions, reflect on how a topic relates to your own experience, discuss with other people and become more involved with the material presented. Students can pinpoint the topics they are studying for GCSE by using the table mapping the GCSE specification against the lessons in this book. For those studying outside formal classrooms there are guidelines about how best to approach your studies. The book assumes that readers have no previous knowledge of psychology and among the topics covered are: · Conformity and Obedience - would you press a button to kill someone just because you are told to do so? Many people would, it seems. · Sex and Gender - do girls and boys, men and women behave so differently? If so, why? · Memory - how does memory work and how accurate is it? · Non-Verbal Communication - do we reveal our true feelings in our body language? · Development of Personality - what exactly is Anti-Social Personality Disorder? · Prejudice and Discrimination - are we bound to discriminate against people who are unlike us? · Learning - how to remove your fear of spiders/snakes/flying/open spaces or anything else using the principles of learning. · Aggression - is aggression born into us? Is it in our hormones? Or do we learn to fight? · Research Methods and the Ethics of Psychology - psychology is based on evidence, not just ideas. But what type of study constitutes good evidence and how should we treat the people in our studies?

What does pleasure have to do with morality? What role, if any, should intuition have in the formation of moral theory? If something is ‘simulated’, can it be immoral? This accessible and wide-ranging textbook explores these questions and many more. Key ideas in the fields of normative ethics, metaethics and applied ethics are explained rigorously and systematically, with a vivid writing style that enlivens the topics with energy and wit. Individual theories are discussed in detail in the first part of the book, before these positions are applied to a wide range of contemporary situations including business ethics, sexual ethics, and the acceptability of eating animals. A wealth of real-life examples, set out with depth and care, illuminate the complexities of different ethical approaches while conveying their modern-day relevance. This concise and highly engaging resource is tailored to the Ethics components of AQA Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies, with a clear and practical layout that includes end-of-chapter summaries, key terms, and common mistakes to avoid. It should also be of practical use for those teaching Philosophy as part of the International Baccalaureate. Ethics for A-Level is of particular value to students and teachers, but Fisher and Dimmock’s precise and scholarly approach will appeal to anyone seeking a rigorous and lively introduction to the challenging subject of ethics. Tailored to the Ethics components of AQA Philosophy and OCR Religious Studies.
