    Marc A. Cohen joined the faculty of the Albers School in the fall of 2008 as an assistant professor. He earned a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania, and holds a joint appointment in the philosophy department at Seattle University. His academic work concerns social contract theory and exploitation in business ethics; emotions, decision-making and rational agency in moral psychology; and more general questions in moral/ political philosophy about what makes society more than an accidental crowd. Prior to joining Albers, Dr. Cohen served as vice president and corporate strategist at Branch Banking & Trust Co.
