Daniel M. Ogilvie

 

 


 

Daniel current area of research is in the Causes and Consequences of Soul Beliefs.

He obtained his BA and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard University in the 1960's. He also taught at Harvard for a few years before going to Livingston College Campus of Rutgers University in 1970. He was happy to leave Harvard (he has been there long enough) and was delighted to participate in the educational experiment called Livingston College. Although the Livingston Campus still exists, the college is now fully integrated into the larger Rutgers, New Brunswick, School of the Arts.

His major areas of interest fall within the elastic boundaries of personality psychology. There is no graduate area in personality psychology at Rutgers, so he has been slotted into the Social Psychology Program and is surrounded by a splendid group of social psychologists as well as colleagues in neuroscience, cognitive, and clinical psychology.

Throughout history, the vast majority of people around the globe have believed they have, however defined, a “soul.” While the question of whether the soul exists cannot be answered by science, what we can study are the causes and consequences of various beliefs about the soul and its prospects of surviving the death of the body. Why are soul and afterlife beliefs so common in human history? Are there adaptive advantages to assuming souls exist?
