死亡,对人类来说是一个禁忌但又充满诱惑力的话题。人是具有死亡觉知的动物,每个健康成年人都有强烈生存的欲望,但同时又都知道总有一天自己将会死亡。这种终将死亡的现实所带来的焦虑和恐惧广泛地影响人类的行为、认知和情绪。从古代的中国一直到近代的西方,很多哲学家,心理学家都有过对死亡深刻的思考,进而发展出了文字、符号、相应的理论来探讨死亡这一话题。今天,我们将从心理、基因和大脑的角度,一起谈谈死亡。

报告简介:

Culture, like water to fish, is essential for human beings to sustain their living. Psychologists have found that culture shapes individuals’ beliefs, knowledge, emotions, and behaviors. I will present two lines of research in which I attempt to understand the role of culture. In the first line of research, I examine how culture may influence individuals’ emotional feelings in social context. By a serious of studies, I found that the cultural differences in group-level emotion was moderated by the threat level of intergroup context, suggesting the context-bound nature of culture. In the second line of research, I investigate how culture might interact with other factors, such as aging. In particular, I argue that the particular patterns of aging differ across cultures. In one of my studies, I found that the age-related changes in death attitudes and preparation behaviors differed between west (Germany and U.S.) and east culture (Hong Kong). Finally, I will discuss the future directions, which will focus on how to apply the knowledge gained from the abovementioned research to develop culturally appropriated interventions that promote societal welfare, e.g., intergroup relationships, morality, successful aging, and acculturation adaptation.
