Kevin Jung’s work lies in areas that intersect with religious ethics and moral philosophy. He is especially interested in moral epistemology, moral ontology, and action theory where he brings contemporary moral philosophy into conversation with religious ethics. He is currently working on various philosophical and theological problems (e.g., weakness of the will, self-deception, volitional necessity, and free will) related to the will. Jung is the author of Christian Ethics and Commonsense Morality: An Intuitionist Account (Routledge, 2014) and Ethical Theory and Responsibility Ethics (Peter Lang, 2011), and is the editor of Religious Ethics and Constructivism: A Metaethical Inquiry (Routledge, forthcoming) and the coeditor of Doing Justice to Mercy: Religion, Law, and Criminal Justice (University of Virginia Press, 2007) and Humanity Before God: Contemporary Faces of Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Ethics (Fortress Press, 2006). His articles have also appeared in major academic journals.
