Kent Greenfield, Professor, Law School

In The Myth of Choice: Personal Responsibility in a World of Limits, Professor Greenfield surveys the dynamic role of change and its influence on individuals and society. Drawing on fields as diverse as public policy to brain science, Professor Greenfield captures the cutting-edge research being performed to track individuals’ decision-making. His exploration of choice ranges from broad societal trends, such as movements to ban the burqa in public places, to individuals’ moral impulses in executing their personal choices. Professor Greenfield’s focus includes legal issues in choice theory as developed through his seminar at Boston College Law School.
