David Wiens

Associate Professor of Political Science

My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of political philosophy, philosophy of social science, and political economy. Most of my current research explicates the ways in which political philosophy and political science are deeply integrated modes of inquiry. More generally, I am interested in the role of (formal and informal) models in philosophical and scientific inquiry, and in sorting out what we can learn about the nature and value of justice from models of collective choice, social bargaining, and institutional development.
