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.
