My name is Bence Péter Marosán, I was born on April 1, 1978 in Budapest. I did my high school studies at Anna Frank High School (today: Sándor Scheiber High School) between 1993 and 1997. I studied philosophy and aesthetics between 1997 and 2008 at the Faculty of Humanities, at Eötvös Loránd University. I partly did my PhD studies also at Eötvös Loránd University, studying philosophy (specializing to phenomenology), between 2005 and 2013, and partly abroad, in Ireland (University College Dublin, 2008), Germany (Bergische Universität Wuppertal, 2009) and France, Paris (Université Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne; École Normale Supérieure, 2010). I defended my doctoral dissertation in 2013 in Hungarian at Eötvös Loránd University. The title of my dissertation was, “The Life of Apodicticity. Contributions to the Phenomenology of Truth ”. Topic: The problem of truth and evidence in the phenomenological movement, and especially in the work of Edmund Husserl. (Phenomenology is the philosophical theory of experience in general). My main field of specialization is philosophy, especially the work of Edmund Husserl (1859-1938), an Austro-German mathematician and philosopher. In addition, I deal with social sciences and political theory. I publish in English, German and French. I am one of the founding members of the Hungarian Phenomenological Association. My main professional awards: In 2001 I won first place in the national essay competition of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Budapest in the category of philosophy. In 2004, I won second place in the essay competition of Péter Balassa, Institute of Art Theory and Media Research, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. In 2007, I won first place at the National Scientific Student Conference, in the Aesthetics subsection of the Social Sciences Section. On June 28, 2018, I received the János Bolyai Research Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. On October 5, 2018, I received the Scientific Prize of the Faculty of Foreign Trade of the Budapest University of Economics. I regularly publish mainly in the Hungarian Philosophical Review (Magyar Filozófiai Szemle). I have also published two books about Edmund Husserl in Hungarian (2017: Context and Phenomenon I. Truth, Evidence and Experience in Edmund Husserl's Work. Budapest: L'Harmattan Publisher. 2020: Context and Phenomenon II. The Problem of Truth in Husserl's Philosophy of Time Consciousness and Genesis). My publications appear regularly abroad; most recently (2020) in Horizon Studies in Phenomenology. (Husserl’s Contextualist Theory of Truth). Recently, I have started to carry out more and more intensive researches in fields of environmental protection, sustainability and environmental ethics. I have also published a number of publications in these areas, and I am currently preparing several new ones, some of them in English.
