Using a conversational style that conveys the excitement, research base, and real-world applications of the field, Regan A. R. Gurung introduces students to health psychology with an integrated cultural perspective. Gurung focuses on key determinants of behavior—such as family, ethnicity, and religion—which are not always highlighted in health psychology books. The text is packed with the most up-to-date citations available, presenting topics taken straight from headline news as well as classic issues in the field. A range of vivid examples from different cultural groups provides students with a comprehensive description of basic theories and an overview of cutting-edge research in health psychology. Special sections that showcase clinical applications, coverage of personality and social psychological theories, and chapters devoted to variations in cultural beliefs, human development, and different diseases combine to give readers the best of many worlds.

Highly praised by reviewers for its clarity and rich exposition, this history of philosophy text illustrates philosophy as a process and not just a collection of opinions or conclusions. Rather than simply giving a reporting the results of a given philosopher, Lawhead's prose assists students in retracing the thinker's intellectual journey that first gave rise to the ideas for which they are remembered. In effect, the particular philosopher's deliberations become a puzzle which students are invited to take up themselves. Lawhead uses metaphors, analogies, vivid images, concrete examples, common experiences, and diagrams to bring the abstract issues down to earth and show the unavoidable practical implications and contemporary relevance of positions.

Luciano Floridi presents an innovative approach to philosophy, conceived as conceptual design. He explores how we make, transform, refine, and improve the objects of our knowledge. His starting point is that reality provides the data, to be understood as constraining affordances, and we transform them into information, like semantic engines. Such transformation or repurposing is not equivalent to portraying, or picturing, or photographing, or photocopying anything. It is more like cooking: the dish does not represent the ingredients, it uses them to make something else out of them, yet the reality of the dish and its properties hugely depend on the reality and the properties of the ingredients. Models are not representations understood as pictures, but interpretations understood as data elaborations, of systems. Thus, Luciano Floridi articulates and defends the thesis that knowledge is design and philosophy is the ultimate form of conceptual design. Although entirely independent of Floridi's previous books, The Philosophy of Information (OUP 2011) and The Ethics of Information (OUP 2013), The Logic of Information both complements the existing volumes and presents new work on the foundations of the philosophy of information.
