Gerald Cupchik has spent 40 years exploring the search for meaning and experiences of feelings and emotions in everyday and aesthetic episodes. Topics of special interest have included: nonverbal communication of emotion; creation and reception of art and poetry; appreciation of metaphor; and the experience of industrial design objects. From a methodological viewpoint, an important goal has been the integration of quantitative and qualitative forms of data collection in order to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon under study.
