F. Thurnau Professor and John Dewey Distinguished University Professor
Philosophy and Women's Studies. I teach courses in ethics, social
and political philosophy, political economy, philosophy
of the social sciences, and
feminist theory. My research focuses on
democratic theory, equality in political philosophy and American law,
the ethical limits of markets, theories of value and rational choice
(alternatives to consequentialism and economic theories of
rational choice), the philosophies of John Stuart Mill and John Dewey,
social epistemology, and feminist epistemology and philosophy of
science. I am
currently working on the history of egalitarianism, with a special
focus on the social epistemology of moral learning, taking the history
of abolitionism as a central case study. I designed and was the
first Director of the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.
