About


The Center for Psychological Humanities and Ethics aims to create venues where vital conversations can take place between the psychological sciences and the fields of philosophy, theology, sociology, history, literature, political studies, and the arts. The emphasis of these sustained and impactful dialogues is on the enduring ethical questions at the heart of human existence. Focusing on such questions helps to return psychology to its deeper roots, reorienting the field toward a greater care for the whole person and providing it with more nuanced approaches to suffering in its various forms.
