Description

Michael Sandel's "Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?" invites readers of all ages and political persuasions on a journey of moral reflection, and shows how reasoned debate can illuminate our lives. Is it always wrong to lie? Should there be limits to personal freedom? Can killing sometimes be justified? Is the free market fair? What is the right thing to do? Questions like these are at the heart of our lives. In this acclaimed book Michael Sandel - BBC Reith Lecturer and the Harvard professor whose 'Justice' course has become world famous - gives us a lively and accessible introduction to the intersection of politics and philosophy. He helps us think our way through such hotly contested issues as equal rights, democracy, euthanasia, abortion and same-sex marriage, as well as the ethical dilemmas we face every day. "One of the most popular teachers in the world". ("Observer"). "Enormously refreshing...Michael Sandel transforms moral philosophy by putting it at the heart of civic debate". ("New Statesman"). "One of the world's most interesting political philosophers". ("Guardian"). "Spellbinding". ("The Nation"). Michael Sandel is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government at the University of Harvard. Sandel's legendary 'Justice' course is one of the most popular and influential at Harvard.
