Jonathan Cooper

PhD Student, Stanford University
Adam Smith Fellow

Jonathan Cooper is a PhD student in history at Stanford University. His research interests include mapping out a rigorously contextualized longue durée history of political economy before Adam Smith Smith, tracing the slow emergence of the methodological, epistemological, and ontological conceptual apparatus we associate with modern economics by drawing broadly on historiographies of science and political thought. Jon earned an MS in history and philosophy of science as well as a BA in history from the University of Cambridge.
