ANTECEDENTS AND CONSEQUENCES OF FUNCTIONAL-PSYCHOPATHIC BEHAVIOUR IN HIGHER EDUCATION 

by Daniel Lund 

WHEN: Tuesday, April 12th, 12.00 – 13.00

WHERE: Block C-3/new GSB/GSPP Building, 3rd floor, Room 3.037

ABSTRACT:

The antecedents and consequences of psychopathic behavior in Higher Education have received little to no research attention. Apart from academia, a wide range of studies explore the factors that determine and influence psychopathic traits in some people, the consequences of criminal behavior of psychopaths and the effects of ‘functional’ white-collar psychopathic activities in business organizations. This presentation provides an insight into some of the causes and characteristics of psychopathy and evaluates its likely prevalence and influence in Higher Education organizations. Hypotheses and questions are proposed for further exploring this prevalent but often ‘unspoken’ phenomenon in Higher Education.
