We’re pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Matthew Adler to a Lachmann Fellowship with the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, starting September 2017.
Matthew D. Adler is the Richard A. Horvitz Professor of Law and Professor of Economics, Philosophy and Public Policy at Duke University. His scholarship is interdisciplinary, drawing from law, welfare economics and normative ethics. Prof Adler’s publications include New Foundations of Cost-Benefit Analysis (co-authored with Eric Posner) and Well-Being and Fair Distribution: Beyond Cost-Benefit Analysis, which systematically defends the “social welfare function” as a framework for policy analysis.
For two years from September 2017, Prof Adler will be taking up a Ludwig M. Lachmann Professorial Research Fellowship with the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CPNSS). He will spend a quarter of the academic year at LSE in 2017–18 and 2018–9 and will teach PhD-level seminars in the Department.
We look forward to welcoming Professor Adler to the Department and Centre.
