Speaker bio

Mark Fagiano is an assistant professor at Washington State University. His research gravitates around philosophical problems in the disciplines of ethics, social and political philosophy, and the philosophy of technology. As a pragmatist, Fagiano's research is grounded in the revolutionary vision of William James (especially James's theory of relations). His admiration of James and other pragmatists has, not surprisingly, directed him to reflect upon more pressing and threatening existential and social problems that are relevant to the pursuit of living a good life.

As a teacher of philosophy, Fagiano aims to help his students come to realize how philosophical reflection can assist them when making some of the most important decisions they will face during their lifetimes.
