The theory of hate – and how it applies to personal relationships and world events – will be presented by Yale University’s Robert Sternberg, cognitive psychologist and president of the American Psychological Association. The lecture, given in conjunction with Emory’s Sawyer Seminar titled "Genocide and its Meaning: Rwanda and Nazi Germany," will examine the structure of hate and how it develops, as well as it application to terrorism, massacres and genocides.

Sternberg is best known for his study of human intelligence, specifically the processes involved in taking intelligence tests. His research has helped to re-think the conventional methods of evaluating an individual’s intelligence and to redefine intelligence to incorporate practical knowledge.
