A New Politics of the Common Good

A quick heads up: The BBC is fea­tur­ing a series of lec­tures with Michael Sandel (Har­vard Pro­fes­sor of Gov­ern­ment) that will col­lec­tive­ly talk about “the prospects of a new pol­i­tics of the com­mon good.” Sandel is a very pop­u­lar pro­fes­sor at Har­vard. Some 15,000 stu­dents have tak­en his cours­es over 30 years. In the first lec­ture, Sandel takes a look at the moral­i­ty of the mar­kets (a time­ly top­ic, to be sure) and “con­sid­ers the expan­sion of mar­kets and how we deter­mine their moral lim­its.” You can lis­ten here.

Also, note that you can find anoth­er mini-course by Sandel on the Har­vard web­site.  Jus­tice: A Jour­ney in Moral Rea­son­ing (Video) is one of the very few cours­es that Har­vard has pro­duced and made avail­able to the pub­lic. You can find it oth­er­wise list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Uni­ver­si­ty Cours­es.
