Greg Anderson

Greg Anderson uses history to question the way we think about the nature of reality itself.

Why you should listen

Greg Anderson is a Professor of History at Ohio State University, where he has taught since 2005. He uses his work to encourage people to see that humans have always lived in a “pluriverse” of many different worlds, not in a universe of just one -- and explore how this radical shift in perspective changes the way we think about life on earth in the past, present and future. His book The Realness of Things Past argues that we need to study the peoples of the past on their own non-modern terms, in their own worlds of experience.
