What is the Right Thing to Do?

Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? by Michael J. Sandel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book took me awhile to read, despite its very accessible writing, because it's full of weighty things that I wanted to give serious thought to. The author is a professor of Government at Harvard who has long been teaching a course entitled Justice, that examines a wide array of political and philosophical thought from Aristotle to Rawls and how it relates to the real world. The book is well-written, very accessible despite its deep thoughts, with lots of examples taken from current events. A great primer on these issues.

You can also view Sandel's lectures for the Justice course at http://www.justiceharvard.org/ or through iTunes.

Highly recommended.
