Philosopher and Pragmatist

Mark Fagiano is a philosophy professor at the University of Tennessee who specializes in pragmatism and ethics. He earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Emory University and an M.A. in the anthropological study of religion from the G.T.U. Berkeley.

As a pragmatist, Mark's research, writings, and lectures are inspired by the relational and pluralistic approach of William James, which has contributed to the structure of his forthcoming book with Indiana University Press, Pragmatism about Race (2016).

In Empathy Studies, Mark adopts this same approach by promoting a pragmatic and broad understanding of empathy, which helps to explore the multiple meanings and practices of what people call "empathy" and devises practical habits for meaningful and flourishing interpersonal relationships. He is currently working on a second book, Empathy and Social Justice, which will be completed by the end of next year.

Mark is also the founder of Empathy Vision, which offers empathy-activation solutions through seminars, workshops, and online courses based on research in neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy. Focusing mainly on the relationship between individual habits and organizational/communal development, Empathy Vision offers innovative, measurable, and customized training systems that focus on empathic skill, the power of habits, critical thinking skills, relationship development, and the creation of meaningful work.
