Early Life[edit]

Jonathan Anomaly was born in Hawaii and grew up in Southern California. He attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied philosophy and economics. He obtained a Master’s degree from Columbia University, and a PhD from Tulane University, where he was awarded a fellowship from the Murphy Institute of Political Economy.[1]


Dr. Anomaly has taught at many universities around the USA, including Duke, UNC, Penn, Arizona, and San Diego.[2][3][4] He has held visiting positions at the universities of Oxford and Gothenburg, and recently established the first Philosophy, Politics, and Economics program in Latin America.[5] His first book, Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, was published by Oxford University Press, and co-authored with Geoff Brennan, Mike Munger, & Geoff Sayre-McCord. Anomaly’s second book, Creating Future People, explores how our ability to manipulate the genetic endowment of our children is likely to transform the human race.

Anomaly is a pro-natalist,[6] advocates eugenics[7] and genetic enhancement,[8] and opposes factory farming.[9] He has written articles on collective action problems such as antibiotic resistance,[10] especially resistance arising from the overuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture,[11] and has published papers on the potential benefits[12] and costs[13] of using embryo selection to increase intelligence. He has also written about the dangers of egalitarian political dogmas in modern American universities.[14][15][16][17]
