From 2012 to 2015 he worked on a research project investigating the connection of metaphysics, theology and ethics at the turn from Late Scholasticism to Early Modern Philosophy, focusing on the Natural Law Theories in Gabriel Vázquez and Baruch Spinoza. Marko J. Fuchs was habilitated at Bamberg University in 2016. From 2017-2018 he spent one year as a Visiting Schoar at Heythrop College, University of London, and the Pontificia Università Greoriana, Rome, working on projects about Spinoza and Expansive Theistic Naturalism and the influence of ancient philosophy of language on early Christian thought.

His work covers a wide range of areas, especially ethics, classical philosophy of the self (Descartes and Augustine), metaphysics and philosophy as a system (Spinoza, German Idealism), classical and mediaeval Aristotelism (esp. Thomas Aquinas), and the history of philosophy. He has also worked about classical and modern German and French philosophy (Kant, Hegel, Heidegger, Adorno, Sartre, Derrida) and Phenomenology.
