David Rowthorn


My research involves a philosophical approach to key issues in marketing ethics, including child marketing, manipulation and autonomy, and corporate social responsibilty. My background is Nietzsche scholarship, but I am interested in a wide range of philosophical topics. My doctoral dissertation focused on Nietzsche's conception of culture, and my approach to marketing ethics is partly informed by Nietzschean insights into culture and cultural change. I currently work as a sessional teacher at Warwick.
