Leon Richard Kass (born February 12, 1939) is an American physician, scientist, educator, and public intellectual. Kass is best known as a proponent of liberal education via the “Great Books,” as a critic of human cloning, life extension, euthanasia and embryo research, and for his tenure as chairman of the President’s Council on Bioethics from 2001 to 2005. Although Kass is often referred to as a bioethicist, he eschews the term and refers to himself as “an old-fashioned humanist. A humanist is concerned broadly with all aspects of human life, not just the ethical.”
