Keltner and Ekman — The Science of “Inside Out”

WPA members Dacher Keltner (UC Berkeley) and Paul Ekman (UC San Francisco) wrote a New York Times article on the science of emotions as depicted in the new film “Inside Out” (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/05/opinion/sunday/the-science-of-inside-out.html). Keltner and Ekman served as scientific consultants for the film and their article praises the film for its accurate portrayal of emotions (despite some minor quibbles!). Dacher Keltner will be at the 2016 WPA convention in Long Beach as the Psi Chi Distinguished Speaker and delivering the WPA Social Responsibility Award Address.
