Michael Sandel: The Lost Art of Democratic Debate

If you think that civic discourse & engagement still matter, then Michael Sandel, the Harvard philosopher, has a little something for you: a refresher (presented at TED) that gets you back into the practice of civic debate. Some of the topics covered here dovetail with themes covered in Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?, a hugely popular Harvard course that Sandel has now made freely available online. You can find the course on YouTube, iTunes and Harvard’s web site. It’s also listed in our big collection of Free Online Courses. You’ll find it listed with other free philosophy courses.
