Dean Gendler is the Dean of Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Vincent J. Scully Professor of Philosophy, and Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science. Her academic research brings together the techniques of traditional Anglo-American philosophy with empirical work from psychology and other social sciences; her interests include the relation between imagination and belief, the contrast between rational and non-rational persuasion, and the role of habits in shaping behavior and judgment. Many of these issues are explored in her Open Yale Course, Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature. A legendary teacher, she was the 2013 recipient of the Yale College-Sidonie Miskimin Clauss ’75 Prize for Excellence in Teaching in the Humanities. Dean Gendler has served on boards or steering committees for numerous academic and educational institutions, foundations, and corporations.
