Will The Real Jonathan Adler Please Stand Up?

Running through a very interesting NYT article on how we use narratives to construct our lives, I read this passage:
Jonathan Adler, a researcher at Northwestern, has found that people’s accounts of their experiences in psychotherapy provide clues about the nature of their recovery. In a recent study presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in January, Mr. Adler reported on 180 adults from the Chicago area who had recently completed a course of talk therapy. They sought treatment for things like depression, anxiety, marital problems and fear of flying, and spent months to years in therapy.

A psychology researcher at Northwestern? But I thought Jonathan Adler was a Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve who blogged at Volokh? Or perhaps a Philosophy professor at City University of New York who is currently visiting at Carleton?

Now, Jonathan Adler isn't the most uncommon name (call me if you meet three Christian Goldsteins), but it's not exactly John Smith either. Three Jonathan Adlers in my immediate orbit seems like a bit much. I recommend a death match to thin the ranks a bit.

Three Jons enter, one Jon leaves!

UPDATE: Via Adler #2, we find there is yet another Jonathan Adler lurking out there.
