Headshot of Mark Wells

Visiting Lecturer of Philosophy

Mark Wells received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Bowling Green State University in 2014.

Dr. Wells primarily writes on issues in applied ethics and politics. He is interested in how ethical theorizing can inform personal, organizational, and public policy. In his recent publications, he has argued that we should not market those goods and services we owe to others, that healthcare institutions should stop forcefully securing remuneration from patients who lack capacity, and that governments like the U.S. should expand legal protections for birds of the corvid family.

Wells also has a continuing interest in Buddhist philosophy as well as normative ethics in general and the meaning of life in particular.
