Cathleen Muller

Lecturer in Philosophy
Director of Core/Liberal Studies


I am a Lecturer in Philosophy and the Director of the Core/Liberal Studies program at Marist. I started teaching full-time at Marist in 2011 and have taught a wide range of courses over the years: Philosophical Perspectives, Ethics, First-Year Seminar: Family Matters, Knowledge and Reality, Foundations of American Social Thought, and Symbolic Logic. My academic interests are similarly wide-ranging, although I am most interested in the metaphysics of fiction and how fiction and art intersect with other questions that shape our lives, such as political activism, personal identity, race, and gender. When not engaged in academic work, I enjoy reading, running, spending time with my family, playing accordion, and walking on stilts at local parades and festivals.
