Author, "After Disbelief and The Assault on American Excellence" | Sterling Professor of Law,Yale Law School | Former Dean, Yale Law School
Anthony Kronman is a writer, lawyer, Sterling Professor of Law at Yale Law School, and a former dean of the Yale Law School from 1994 -2004.
Anthony is the author or coauthor of six books, including, The Assault on American Excellence. In it Professor Kronman makes a radical argument that to graduate as good citizens, college students have to be tested in a system that isn’t wholly focused on being good to them. He is also author of Confessions of a Born-Again Pagan and Education's End.
In his most recent book, After Disbelief: On Disenchantment, Disappointment, Eternity, and Joy Anthony offers an alternative to two entrenched positions: people of faith believe the meaning of life depends on our connection to an eternal order of some kind and atheists deride this belief as a childish superstition. He argues that neither addresses the complexities of the human condition.
