Abstract: The Dirac cohomology of a finite dimensional representation of a complex semisimple Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g}$, with respect to any quadratic subalgebra $ \mathfrak{h}$, is computed. This generalizes a formula obtained by Kostant in the case where $ \mathfrak{g}$ and $ \mathfrak{h}$ have equal rank, and by Huang, Kang and Pandžić in the case where $ \mathfrak{h}$ is the fixed point of an involution.
