Mark D. White


College of Staten Island

In 2013, Professor White became the founding chair of the Department of Philosophy after it split from the Department of Political Science, Economics, and Philosophy (of which he had been a member since 1998 and chair since 2011) at the College of Staten Island. Professor White teaches courses in the intersections of economics, philosophy, and law, including Legal Philosophy , Law and Economics, and Economics and Philosophy. In his scholarly research, Professor White primarily uses the philosophy of Immanuel Kant to enrich the ethical foundations of economics, practical decision-making, and policy. He also writes books and essays for popular audiences on philosophical and economic issues, often in the context of superheroes of comics, television, and film.
