Professor Kagan is the Clark Professor of Philosophy at Yale University. His main research interests lie in moral philosophy, and in particular, normative ethics. Much of his work centers on the debate between consequentialist and deontological moral theories, with publications on the nature of well-being, moral desert, utopia, and the connections between Kantianism and consequentialism. Professor Kagan is a popular lecturer at Yale, known for his introductory lectures on Death and Ethics. His course on Death has been turned into an Open Yale Course, and his writings include a book based on this course. Professor Kagan has served as a Slifka Center Fellow, and more recently was a featured guest at a Slifka Center Online Salon.
