Description

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Michael J Sandel's, Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? as read by the author himself.

Considering the role of justice in our society and our lives, Michael Sandel reveals how an understanding of philosophy can help to make sense of politics, religion, morality - and our own convictions. Breaking down hotly contested issues - from abortion, euthanasia, and same-sex marriage to patriotism, dissent, and affirmative action - Sandel shows how the biggest questions in our civic life can be broken down and illuminated through reasoned debate.

Justice promises to take readers - of all ages and political persuasions - on an exhilarating journey to confront today's political and moral controversies in a fresh and enlightening way.

Commentaires

"One of the world's most interesting political philosophers." ( Guardian)
"Michael Sandel, perhaps the most prominent college professor in America...practices the best kind of academic populism, managing to simplify John Stuart Mill and John Rawls without being simplistic. But Sandel is best at what he calls bringing 'moral clarity to the alternatives we confront as democratic citizens'.... He ends up clarifying a basic political divide - not between left and right, but between those who recognize nothing greater than individual rights and choices, and those who affirm a 'politics of the common good,' rooted in moral beliefs that can't be ignored." (Michael Gerson, Washington Post)
"Sandel explains theories of justice...with clarity and immediacy; the ideas of Aristotle, Jeremy Bentham, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, Robert Nozick and John Rawls have rarely, if ever, been set out as accessibly.... In terms we can all understand, Justice confronts us with the concepts that lurk, so often unacknowledged, beneath our conflicts." (Jonathan Rauch, New York Times)

Thought provoking without being overwhelming

The book raises questions everyone should think about because moral justice often comes with dilemma and it's not just black or white. Sandel expresses his views without being aggresive. He is engaging and breaks down theories and philosophies in a way which finally makes sense of what ancient, classical and contemporary philosophers were trying to tell us. I'll be listening to it again to attain another layer of illumination into the understanding of justice and the good life.

excelent summary of classical justice issues

the book summarises the classical theories of justice. it is exceptionally well written and very entertaining. however, don't expect a modern scientific understanding of justice issues. meaning that "experiment" is nowhere to be seen in this book. and it's not the books fault. it's an area of science still missing
