Federico Marcon studies the interaction of social, economic, and political dynamics that formed intellectual discourses and scientific knowledge in early modern Japan.

He is currently writing a book that investigates the monetization of Japanese society between the sixteenth and the late nineteenth century. He is also studying the works of Theodor W. Adorno and of other members of the Frankfurt School of critical theory and their importance in twentieth-century philosophy worldwide.
