Greg Anderson

Greg Anderson is Professor of History at Ohio State University. His teaching and research combine interests in historical thought and practice, contemporary critical theory, and the experiences of non-modern peoples. His recent work, such as The Realness of Things Past: Ancient Greece and Ontological History, makes the case for an “ontological turn” in historical practice, arguing on ethical, philosophical, and historical grounds that we need to analyze every historical lifeworld on its own ontological terms, in effect as a world unto itself. He holds a PhD in classics from Yale University.
