Michael Sandel, Philosopher and Professor: In Defence of Dialogue (Podcast)
He is the world's most popular contemporary philosopher. Michael Sandel, Professor at Harvard University and 2018 Princess of Asturias Award for Social Sciences, aims to put civic education on the table and connect philosophy with our daily lives. Also on this podcast.
This professor of Political Philosophy seeks to revive the Socratic spirit and stops to talk to people to inquire what justice is or what the “common good” means. He does this inside and, more importantly, outside the classroom. In the BBC series ‘The Global Philosopher’, he leads video discussions with participants from over thirty countries on the ethical aspects of issues such as immigration or climate change. His writings on justice, ethics, democracy and markets have been translated into more than 25 languages, including the book ‘What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets’. The philosopher also teaches "Justice", the first Harvard course available for free online and on television.
