Dr. Fitzgerald’s area of specialty is ethics, with particular attention to fundamental and health care issues.  In his teaching and research, he strives to bring Catholic moral theology into dialogue with other worldviews (notably Jewish, Buddhist, and secular perspectives) and disciplines (including philosophy, psychology, and law).  He is the author of The Seductiveness of Virtue: Abraham Joshua Heschel and John Paul II on Morality and Personal Fulfillment (Bloomsbury T&T Clark, 2016) and co-editor (with Ashley Moyse) of Treating the Body in Medicine and Religion: Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Perspectives (Routledge, 2018, forthcoming).  He has published articles in various journals as well, and St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences presented him with Faculty Recognition Awards for his research output from 2014-15 and 2016-17.  He is a registered attorney in New York and New Jersey.
