Marcus’ homepage



I am associate professor of philosophy at the University of Connecticut, the director of the UConn Logic Group, and an affiliate member of the Connecticut Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences.

I am associate editor of the journal Erkenntnis and the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy, and member of the editorial board of the journal Thought.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of St Andrews in 2006 for a dissertation on second-order logic.

My research interests lie mainly in logic and the philosophy of mathematics, but I am also interested in philosophy of language, aesthetics, and the history of analytic philosophy.

Some topics that currently occupy my mind are inferentialism, logical consequence, truth, abstractionism (a.k.a. neo-logicism), nominalism in the philosophies of mathematics, art, and logic, ontological commitment, plurals, higher-order logic, the role of model theory in philosophy, Rudolf Carnap, Nelson Goodman, and Gottlob Frege.

I am one of the translators of Gottlob Frege’s Grundgesetze der Arithmetik. Some details about this project can be found here.

You could also have a look at the UConn Today story on the Frege translation.
