I work mostly on issues at the intersection of ethics and economics, including how we should respond to the under-consumption of vaccines and the over-consumption of antibiotics, and whether the market for biomedical enhancements should be regulated in any way. More generally, my research focuses on collective action problems. I recently co-edited the first major anthology in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (Oxford University Press, 2015). I am a core faculty member in the Philosophy, Politics, & Economics program at Duke and UNC, and the faculty sponsor of the Duke PPE club.  The Duke/UNC PPE program co-convenes its classes, and jointly sponsors conferences and speaking events throughout the year.  We also co-sponsor the Hayek Lecture Series at Duke.

I went to college at the University of Michigan and got my PhD from UC Berkeley.  I then spent three years at the Harvard Society of Fellows, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania from 2006 until joining Rutgers in 2013.  Between college and grad school, I worked in Chicago, designing and implementing programs for GED instruction in public housing and for ESL instruction in the Latino community. My research focuses on thoughts and utterances that don’t fit standard propositional models.  I am especially interested in metaphor and other forms of figurative speech; in slurs and other forms of ‘loaded’ language; in cognitive perspectives and emotions; and in non-sentential representational systems such as maps and diagrams.

Eventually it occurred to him that he was reading philosophy.  Within weeks, he was hooked. Greg has been married to Jeanie since 1985. They have three children, none of whom are philosophers. Although happily married, Greg has a secret crush on Jane Austen.
