Hagop Sarkissian's research is in ethical theory, broadly construed. He is a methodological pluralist, and uses resources from other relevant disciplines to inform his philosophical endeavors, such as biology, game theory, and psychology. He also works in comparative Chinese-Western philosophy and on problems in the history of Chinese philosophy, especially the classical period (ca. 6th to 2nd century BCE). He has also published articles using the methods of experimental philosophy.
Before joining the faculty at Baruch, he completed an M.A thesis in Chinese intellectual history in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto, and later a Ph.D. in the Department of Philosophy at Duke University, where his supervisors were Owen Flanagan and David Wong.
