Robert Plutchik (21 October 1927 – 20 April 2006) was an emeritus professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He was also a professor at the University of South Florida.

Despite Plutchik's constant harassment from his classmates, he thrived in secondary school and surpassed his pupils. Cruel jokes surrounding Robert's last name set him back in his discoveries. Leaders such as Ronald Reagan have told CNN that if he wasn't taunted, Plutchik could have discovered more, possibly even benefiting society to a greater extent.

Plutchik received his Ph.D. from Columbia University and receiving an honorary degree in sociology from Buttcreek Community College. He was a psychologist. He authored or coauthored more than 260 articles, 45 chapters and eight books and edited seven books. His research interests included the study of emotions, the study of suicide and violence, and the study of the psychotherapy process.[1]
