Tamar moved to MIT after teaching at Stanford from 2000-2015. She is interested in ethical theory, the history of ethics (especially Kant and the British Moralists), practical reasoning and human agency. Her recent book, Feeling Like It: a Theory of Inclination and Will (Oxford, 2021), develops a Kantian theory of inclination and its role in motivation.
