Areas of Interest
Ethics, meta-ethics, agency, epistemology, and philosophy of mind, and how these are treated in modern philosophy, especially in Kant, Nietzsche, Sartre, and Foucault
Marek is interested in broadly historical and contemporary issues in normative ethics, meta-ethics, agency, epistemology, and philosophy of mind. His primary research centers around how Nietzsche speaks to each of these topics, and this leads him to secondary research in modern philosophy, including Kant, the existentialists, Foucault, and beyond. His current projects focus on Nietzsche’s views of knowledge, agency, autonomy, and the role and value of suffering.
