He works in the history of philosophy (both ancient and early modern, especially Kant) and in action theory and moral psychology. Markus also has significant interests and expertise in European and more specifically German literature and in philosophy and literature. He did undergraduate work at the University of Trier and the University of Munich. He did two masters degrees at Oxford, one in philosophy and one in European Literature. He then did doctoral work at Stanford in German Studies before moving to Berkeley to do his PhD in Philosophy. He’s published an essay on Aristotle in Phronesis and an essay on Kafka in Modern Language Review.
