Emotional Openness: The route to intellectual humility?

  • Reddy, Vasu (PI)

Project Details


Intellectual humility is important – in science and in everyday life. Humility in the face of ideas, however, requires, first and foremost, an emotional openness to people. To understand intellectual humility, therefore, we need to make two crucial shifts: first, explore its emotional roots and indeed see it as an emotional phenomenon itself; and second, step back into infancy and ask how emotional openness to others is first manifest, how it develops.
