Hicks, Joshua Professor


My research aims to understand how people answer the "big" questions in life and how people's answers to those questions influence their attitudes and behavior. Our lab formulates and tests a wide range of hypotheses related to many types of existential concerns focusing on the antecedents and consequences of the experience of meaning in life, authenticity, self-alienation, perceptions of free-will, and mortality awareness.
