Marek Twarzynski


B.A., Philosophy with Honors, Stanford University, 2015

Areas of Interest

Ethics, meta-ethics, moral psychology, and the theory of agency, and how these problems are treated in the history of modern philosophy, particularly in Nietzsche and also in Kant, 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.
