Visiting Fellow: Eric Schliesser
The Freedom Center is excited to welcome Dr. E.S. (Eric) Schliesser as a visiting fellow during fall 2022.
Dr E.S. Schliesser (1971) is professor of Political Science, with a focus on Political Theory, at the University of Amsterdam’s (UvA) Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.
Eric Schliesser's (PhD, The University of Chicago, 2002) research encompasses a variety of themes, ranging from economic statistics in classical Babylon, the history of the natural sciences and forgotten 18th-century feminists (both male and female) to political theory and the history of political theory and the assumptions used in mathematical economics. Schliesser's interest in the influence of Chicago school of economics has increasingly moved his research toward the study of the methodology and political role of economists as experts.
