Bio/Research

Patricia Marino has a BA in math from Wesleyan University, an MA in math from Tulane University, and an MS in math from the University at Buffalo. She was been working at the University of Waterloo since 2004.

Her current work in metaethics concerns the question of how we ought to reason morally in the context of diverse moral outlooks, plural values, and pervasive moral disagreement. In the philosophy of sex, she focuses particularly on objectification. She has written on ambivalence, conflicting desires, and the nature of truth, and is also still interested in the philosophy of mathematics. She thinks of philosophy more as a humanistic discipline than as a scientific one, and has an ongoing concern with the question of what, if anything, makes methods in humanistic study distinctive.
