Lucas Osborne


PhD Student in Jurisprudence and Social Policy

Lucas focuses broadly on the history and application of theories of political economy (ex: Smith, Marx, Walras, Polanyi, Keynes, Hayek), the sociological and historical analysis of past, present, and future forms of capitalism (ex: proprietary capitalism, industrial capitalism, and sharing/platform/financial capitalism), and their impact on various legal forms (ex: contract, property, antitrust, administrative, and regulated industries law). He also studies 19th and 20th-century continental philosophy (ex: Kant, Hegel, Heidegger, Foucault) and philosophies of social science (ex: Weber, Popper, Kuhn, Gadamer, Habermas, Apel).

I formerly worked as a public policy analyst and economist for Boston College University and several years as a private consultant.
