From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
This article is about the philosopher. See also John Hare, 1st Viscount Blakenham.

John E. Hare is a classicist, ethicist, and currently Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale Divinity School. Previously, he has taught at Calvin College and Lehigh University. The son of the British utilitarian R. M. Hare, Hare has created his own ethical theory which integrates Kantian deontological ethics with utilitarian consequentialist ethics. Hare's philosophy (unlike his father's) is specifically Christian and includes elements of Divine command theory.

In his 1996 book The Moral Gap, he outlined and analyzed various philosophers' responses to the gap—which he finds to be identified in Kant's writings—between human ethical ability and human ethical duty; between what is possible and what is required.
