Dr. James W. Kalat received his B.A. degree from Duke University, Summa Cum Laude, and then continued his education at the University of Pennsylvania, receiving his Ph.D. in Psychology under the supervision of Paul Rozin. Currently Dr. Kalat is at North Carolina State University where he is a professor of psychology, teaching both introductory psychology and biological psychology. Besides having authored the best selling biological psychology text, Dr. Kalat has also written an introductory psychology text titled INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY, now in a Seventh Edition, and has published articles on a variety of diverse topics such as taste aversion learning and on the teaching of introductory psychology. With co-author Michelle Shiota, he recently wrote a new textbook, EMOTION (Thomson Wadsworth, 2006). He recently presented to rave reviews at the Texas Community College Teachers Association and received the same when he presented at NITOP (the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology).Review:
"This latest edition of Kalat is very exciting. There is a magical thread woven through the entire book making this text a sure winner among professors and students alike. This thread I am referring to is the timely emphasis on the quintessence of higher psychological function: that is the issue of consciousness."
"For Chapter One, the greatest strength is the first thing the author says...that biological psychology is the most interesting topic in the world, and how he goes on to justify this position. I couldn't agree with him more and I actually make that statement at the beginning of my course each time I teach it. There IS NO substitute for an enthusiastic position and letting students know that from the outset is TERRIFIC!"
"I would describe Kalat's text as one of the most approachable texts on biological psychology. It covers all the important topics clearly and comprehensively. Students find the text interesting and enjoyable, and most importantly, they learn and remember the material presented."
