My name is George Boeree (pronounced boo-RAY). I am a professor in the Psychology Department at Shippensburg University, where I teach personality theories and the history of psychology (among other things). I specialize in the philosophical side of psychology, and have particular interests in phenomenology, existential psychology, Buddhism, and moral development.

I was born in 1952 in a small town called Badhoevedorp, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I came to the US in 1956 with my parents and brother, and grew up mostly on Long Island. I got my BA from Penn State, and my MS and PhD from Oklahoma State, all in Psychology. In 1972, I married Judy Kovarik, the girl next door back in Bay Shore, New York. We have three wonderful daughters: Jenny, Merry, and Katey. We live contentedly among the Amish in the rural splendor of the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania.
