Educated at the University of Toronto and Columbia University (from which he received his Ph.D. in 1956), Wrong teaches at New York University. He is interested especially in social change and social psychology. Much of his work has been an attempt to better understand human nature and its relationship to the structure of society. He contends that sociologists and social psychologists have failed to free themselves from their own perspectives and have thus been unable to gain a truly dialectical vision of human nature.
