Welcome!  

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania

I have a secondary appointment in the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine.  I received my PhD from the NYU Philosophy Department in 2012, and I have a JD from NYU School of Law

My free, online, open-to-all Coursera course, Revolutionary Ideas: An Introduction to Legal and Political Philosophy, was offered in Fall 2014.  This is the syllabus for that class.   

Here's an article in the Boston Globe about some of my work on the use of lotteries, rather than elections, to select political officials.

Here's a popular piece that I wrote for the long-form magazine Aeon in which I make the case for lottocracy.

Please feel free to contact me (aguerr 'at' upenn 'dot' edu) with any questions.
