Philip Mirowski is Carl Koch Professor of Economics and the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of, among others, The Knowledge we have Lost in Information (2017), More Heat than Light (1989), Machine Dreams (2001), ScienceMart (2011), and Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste (2013). He is a recipient of the Ludwig Fleck Prize from the Society for Social Studies of Science, and was named Distinguished Scholar by the History of Economics Society. He has been visiting professor at Yale, University of Massachusetts, Amsterdam, Oxford All Souls, Montevideo, and Paris-Sorbonne. A conference devoted to his work was held by the boundary 2 collective in 2017. His recent research on the problems of open science has appeared in Social Studies of Science. Outside of the economics profession, he is perhaps best known for his work on the history and political philosophy of neoliberalism, and his methodological watchword that intellectual history is the story of thought collectives, not heroic individuals.
