Daniel Ogilvie, Ph.D. is a professor of Psychology at Rutgers University. He received BA and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard and also taught there before moving to Rutgers. Known primarily for his contributions to the field of personality psychology, Ogilvie recently turned his attention to understanding the human propensity to believe we have souls that survive the death of our bodies. This interest took shape after the publication of Fantasies of Flight in 2004, a book that features the value of intensive studies of individual lives. In 2009, he launched his “Soul Searching Project” (now called The Center for Research in Soul Beliefs) and his work in this area formed the foundation of a popular course at Rutgers that deals with the causes and consequences of soul beliefs. He presented some of his ideas about the durability of early-formed afterlife beliefs and related worldviews at TED2013 in a session devoted to the topic of ‘Who Are We?’
Daniel Ogilvie will be available to sign his book, Fantasies of Flight, following the conversation. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
