Welcome to Michael Kates, Ph. D.

The Department of Philosophy would like to welcome Michael Kates to our team of full time faculty. Michael comes to us from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. He was also a Visiting Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at MIT and earned his Ph. D. from New York University. Dr. Kates’ research and teaching interests are at the intersection of political philosophy and normative business ethics, which will make him a great addition to our department.

We look forward to working with Professor Kates in the Fall 2017 semester, when he will be teaching two sections of PHL 320 -Business, Society and Ethics.
