    In I self-published a book I had been working on for a decade: 'Common Sense - The Philosophy of Psychology'. I believed at the time this was a definition of mind, as opposed to brain, and I believe this now even more so.   Introduction to Psychology utilizes the dual theme of behavior and empiricism to make psychology relevant to intro students.

Taking Psychology has taught me a lot more than I already knew about the human mind and human body.

In Psychology I learned the science of behavior and processes.

    Comparative psychology refers to the scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of non-human animals, especially as these relate to the phylogenetic history, adaptive significance, and development of behavior. Research in this area explores the behavior of many species, from insects to primates. Psychology is commonly defined as the science of behavior and mental processes. Psychology does not necessarily refer to the brain or nervous system and can be framed purely in terms of phenomenological or information processing theories of mind.
