What is justice, where does it come from, who decides? If work is to be meaningful it needs to be just. Worth exploring.
- Is it always wrong to lie?
- Should there be limits to personal freedom?
- Can killing sometimes be justified?
- Is the free market fair?
- What is the right thing to do?
Questions like these are at the heart of our lives. In this acclaimed book Michael Sandel - BBC Reith Lecturer and the Harvard professor whose 'Justice' course has become world famous - gives us a lively and accessible introduction to the intersection of politics and philosophy. He helps us think our way through such hotly contested issues as equal rights, democracy, euthanasia, abortion and same-sex marriage, as well as the ethical dilemmas we face every day.
