Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?
Michael Sandel considers the role of justice in our society and our lives, revealing how an understanding of philosophy can help to make sense of politics, religion, morality - and our own convictions. Showing how the biggest questions in our civic life can be broken down and illuminated through reasoned debate, Professor Sandel argues for a new commitment to citizenship and the common good.
