Thanks to Dan and the rest of the permabloggers for having me aboard; I'm looking forward to it. Over the next few weeks, I plan to blog about nudges and some issues at the intersection of philosophy and psychology (in conjunction with brief pieces that are forthcoming on those topics) as well as a few unfolding controversies at the intersection of law and science, likely including the regulation of comparative effectiveness research; the Havasupai genetic research case which was settled out of court in 2010 but has recently resurfaced; and the latest on the Henrietta Lacks's HeLa cell line and genetic privacy.

In the meantime, for the two of you who may be interested (hi Mom and Dad), you can see a more up-to-date c.v. and fuller description of what I'm up to these days by clicking on my name in the list of permanent bloggers, thataway --->

Hi Michelle,

If you're fielding requests, 'd be interested to hear your take on -- well, on almost anything -- but especially on Paul Crawshaw's recent critique that the recent focus on nudging still adopts a neoliberal (yes yes, a catchphrase for all horribles, but not entirely w/o content IMO), hopelessly individualist perspective.

Mazel tov on the new position, BTW!

Michelle Meyer

Thanks, Daniel; that's kind and generous of you to say. And sure, I take requests -- the tip jar's over there on the piano. In all seriousness, though, my forthcoming piece on nudges defends them against attack from the right, but I'll be happy to take a whack at the left, too, and defend the hopelessly individualist perspective in my blog post :-)
