Yoel Inbar

Associate Professor


Fields of Study


Inbar studies how intuitions and emotions—particularly disgust—affect our social, political, and moral beliefs. His earliest work was on how differences in the experience of disgust relate to social and political attitudes. Since then, he has studied the varied ways in which moral intuitions guide beliefs and judgments, especially in social and political domains. Most recently, he has become interested in understanding the acceptance or rejection of new technologies, such as genetic engineering.
