Jamie Arndt is an associate professor in MU’s Department of Psychological Sciences. The talk provides an overview of a theoretical perspective and program of research that explores how human aggression and conflict can be understood, in part, as a response to the existential predicament of the human condition. Theory, research and analyses will be presented to help to understand different facets of human conflict and what it suggests for promoting more peaceful forms of co-existence.
The lecture is part of the 2009 Distinguished Lecture Series in Psychological Sciences, presented by the Department of Psychological Sciences and the College of Arts and Science.
