About Laura Akers, Ph.D.

Welcome!  I’m currently writing a book about the psychology of “meta-narratives,” the collective stories of groups, like scientific progress, looming disasters like climate change, or the need to return to better times.

I’m a researcher with a Ph.D. in social/personality psychology, and I work primarily at Oregon Research Institute.  My interests include beliefs and worldviews, ethics, motivation, and relationships, both among humans and between humans and the natural world.

Thanks for visiting!

    Hi! I was reading your article about what Haidt’s Moral Foundation Theory has wrong and was wondering if you had some articles I could refer to that you used for information ?
