Kahneman was born in Tel Aviv but spent his childhood years in Paris, France, before returning to the Middle East in 1946. He received his bachelors degree in psychology (with a minor in mathematics) from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and in 1954 he was drafted into the Israeli Defense Forces, serving principally in its psychology branch. In 1958 he came to the United States and in 1961, earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley.

Kahneman is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.
