Dr. Edwin E. Gantt, a BYU Associate Professor of Psychology, is one of the student body's favorite members of the BYU Department of Psychology. He was awarded the Teacher of Honor Award by the Brigham Young University Student Honor Association in 2002. His unique perspective has influenced numerous students to consider psychology from alternative points of view and from within the context of revealed latter-day truths. Dr. Gantt is particularly interested in examining the various (and often problematic) ways in which empathy, altruism and religion have been conceptualized and explained in many of the major schools of contemporary psychology and psychotherapy. Some of his works include "Empathy. Encyclopedia of Human Development" and "Hedonism, suffering, and redemption: The challenge of a Christian"
