For other people named John Hare, see John Hare (disambiguation).

John Edmund Hare (born 26 July 1949) is a British classicist, philosopher, ethicist, and currently Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale Divinity School.

He received a Bachelor of Arts in Honours Literae Humaniores in 1971 from Balliol College, Oxford, and a PhD in philosophy from Princeton University in 1975. He was Professor of Philosophy at Lehigh University from 1975 to 1989. He was Professor of Philosophy at Calvin College from 1989 to 2003. He has been the Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale University since 2003.

The son of the British utilitarian R. M. Hare, Hare has created an ethical theory which integrates Kantian deontological ethics with utilitarian consequentialism. Unlike his father's, Hare's philosophy 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. He sees this "moral gap" as ultimately unbridgable apart from religion.

He was selected to give the Gifford Lectures at the University of Glasgow.
