James Krueger is Professor of Philosophy and director of the Health, Medicine, and Society Program at the University of Redlands. His research is focused on understanding a range of concepts central to medicine, from the nature of health and disease to the meanings of cure, treatment, and care. His aim is to orient such reflection towards the details of medical practice. For example, he has argued that broad understandings of health should make sense in light of what doctors actually do in attempting to cure or treat disease. In addition to writing on medicine, he has co-edited a book on Kantian ethics. Before coming to Redlands, he earned his PhD at the University of Notre Dame.
