Michael Sandel’s Free Course on Justice, the Most Popular Course at Harvard, Is Now Online

Harvard University and WGBH Boston have posted online Michael Sandel‘s very popular course, “Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?” How popular is it? Over 14,000 Harvard students have taken this course over the past 30 years. The course takes a close look at our understanding of justice by exploring important, contemporary moral dilemmas. Is it wrong to torture? Is it always wrong to steal? Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth?  We have posted the complete playlist of lectures above.

You can watch the video lectures on YouTube and iTunes and get more information on this course at this Harvard Web Site. The lectures have also been added to our collection: 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities, where you can also find more than 200+ Free Online Philosophy Courses.
