Biography:

Assistant Professor Marcus Adams specializes in the History and Philosophy of Science. His primary area of research concerns the impact of figures in the Scientific Revolution, such as Galileo Galilei and Robert Boyle, upon the Philosophy and Politics of 17th Century England.

Most of his research has focused up the work of the English Philosopher Thomas Hobbes, a figure often viewed as the first modern political theorist. The issues that Adams’s research addresses in their historical and philosophical contexts, such as Thomas Hobbes’s attempt to construct a science of politics that would possess the same level of certainty in its demonstrations as geometry, relate to questions of continual importance in contemporary Philosophy and Politics.

Adams also has research interests in contemporary issues in Applied Ethics. He has written articles and chapters on the nature of physician obligations with particular focus on the roles of military physicians and organ transplant physicians.

Adams received his Ph.D. in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Pittsburgh.
