Metanomics host Robert Bloomfield welcomes fellow Cornell professor Daryl J. Bem, Social Psychologist Emeritus

Professor Bem has written extensively on subjects that could be deemed official topics of virtual worlds conversations. He obtained a degree in Physics from Reed College in 1960 and continued with graduate studies at MIT. But the shift in attitudes towards desegregation in the American South brought on by the Civil Rights movement proved so intriguing that he completed a PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Michigan (1964) and embarked upon a teaching career at several top American universities.

He retired from Cornell in 2007 with an impressive list of publications and has continued his research resulting in the pending publication of Feeling the Future: Experimental evidence for anomalous retroactive influences on cognition and affect in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The article has been making headlines for weeks from the New York Times, You Might Already Know This.. to Precognition and Porn | Science | Fortean Times

Professor Bem has published on several diverse topics in psychology, including group decision making, self-perception, personality theory, ESP, and sexual orientation. He is coauthor of an introductory textbook in psychology and the author of Beliefs, Attitudes, and Human Affairs (1970). His home page contains detailed information:
