Associate Professor of Philosophy

Mary Lyn Stoll received her PhD in philosophy from Purdue University in 2002.  Her dissertation dealt with moral obligation in a global economy focusing upon the environment, the poor, and ways in which businesses can help or hinder us in meeting moral obligations.  Dr. Stoll taught at Minnesota State University, Mankato and at Muskingum College prior to joining USI in August of 2005. 

 Dr. Stoll’s research interests include ethics, applied ethics, and in social and political philosophy.  She is especially interested in corporations and free speech rights, globalization, the environment, and business ethics.  I have published several articles in business ethics on marketing ethics and on corporations and free speech rights. 

Dr. Stoll is also interested in logic, existentialism, phenomenology, American pragmatism, and feminist philosophy.  At USI, she teaches introductory ethics, introduction to philosophy, contemporary philosophy, political and legal philosophy, and logic and critical thinking. Dr. Stoll has taught courses in environmental ethics, media ethics, animal ethics, the ethics of globalization, existentialism, religions of the East, and a course on metaphysics and epistemology at other institutions.
