Speaker: Zach Bucknoff, Psychology Department

Less contentious is the notion that we experience feelings of directing our own actions, and Bucknoff argued that these feelings of agency have meaningful consequences. His dissertation work sheds light on the role of agency in human motivation and moral judgment.
