Tim Kasser: A Revolution of Values

Tim Kasser presents his compelling psychological research on materialism and its alternatives.

After receiving his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Rochester, Tim Kasser accepted a position at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, where he is currently Professor of Psychology. He has authored over sixty scientific articles and book chapters on materialism, values, goals, and quality of life, among other topics. Tim’s first book, The High Price of Materialism , was published by MIT Press in 2002; his second book (co-edited with Allen D. Kanner), Psychology and Consumer Culture, was released by the American Psychological Association in 2004.

From 2005-2009 Tim served as an Associate Editor at Journal of Personality and Social Psychology: Personality Processes and Individual Differences. He also works with activist groups that try to protect children from commercialization and that encourage a more “inwardly rich” lifestyle than what is offered by consumerism. Tim lives with his wife, two sons, and assorted animals in the Western Illinois countryside.
