About "Michael J. Sandel"

  1. Michael J. Sandel

    Michael J Sandel is the Anne T and Robert M Bass Professor of Government at Harvard University, where he has taught since 1980, and the author of many books He lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.Michael J Sandel March 5, 1953 is an American political philosopher and a professor at Harvard University He is best known for the Harvard course Justice , which is available to view online, and for his critique of John Rawls A Theory of Justice in his first book, Liberalism and the Limits of Justice 1982 He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2002.Sandel subscribes to a certain version of communitarianism although he is uncomfortable with the label , and in this vein he is perhaps best known for his critique of John Rawls s A Theory of Justice Rawls argument depends on the assumption of the veil of ignorance, which he claims allows us to become unencumbered selves.Sandel s view is that we are by nature encumbered to an extent that makes it impossible even in the hypothetical to have such a veil Some examples of such ties are those with our families, which we do not make by conscious choice but are born with, already attached Because they are not consciously acquired, is it impossible to separate oneself from such ties Sandel believes that only a less restrictive, looser version of the veil of ignorance should be postulated Criticism such as Sandel s inspired Rawls to subsequently argue that his theory of justice was not a metaphysical theory but a political one, a basis on which an overriding consensus could be formed among individuals and groups with many different moral and political views.

  3. I m going to think fondly of this book for a long long time My copy is battered and stained and loved.



  4. He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god This quote from Aristotle s Politics was new to me It was one of many highlights in this book Sandel s Justice is organized in a very interesting way He starts with utilitarian, then libertarian political philosophy You might assume he s following a sequence of conservative less sophisticated to liberal sophisticated And then, surprise, he throws three crazy detours Kant [...]


  5. On Plato s cave He s right, I think, but only in part The claims of the cave must be given their due If moral reflection is dialectical if it moves back and forth between the judgments we make in concrete situations and the principles that inform those judgments it needs opinions and convictions, however partial and untutored, as ground and grist A philosophy untouched by the shadows on the wall can only yield a sterile utopia p 29 I don t think I ever before heard anyone criticize the meaning b [...]


  6. I love books like this they challenge the mind and lead to great discussions.Michael Sandel teaches a very popular course at Harvard entitled Justice It s available in video through the iTunes University a phenomenal resource, I might add Sandel uses a series of hypothetical situations to focus the class on the different ways philosophers would have analyzed and puzzled out solutions to the problems raised in the hypotheticals This somewhat Socratic method is also used very effectively in severa [...]



  7. An excellent overview of philosophical ethical systems If only I had this book earlier when I started reading philosophy, I d have saved a lot of time Go for the iTunes U version if you d like Starts off with a brief overview of ethical systems utilitarianism, libertarianism, Kant s categorial imperative, Rawlsian justice, and then works through case examples affirmative action, euthanasia, etc Very clear and thorough arguments, for and against If Sandel has a bias for one over the other, he hid [...]


  8. Michael Sandel is something of a moral rock star according to the Financial Times, with hordes of acolytes the world over It is easy for me to see why This book, published in 2009, discusses theories of fairness and freedom that have been the basis of political discourse and civic structure in the U.S for some fifty years, bringing us to the state of affairs we currently observe in our market un regulated society Sandel suggests that we may get twinges now and again that something is amiss in ou [...]

  11. Michael Sandel professore di filosofia politica all universit di Harvard, le cui lezioni sulla giustizia sono affollatissime, tanto che sono state raccolte in questo saggio, che esamina le teorie morali sulla giustizia pi significative, a partire dall utilitarismo al libertarismo, passando per Kant, Rawls ed Aristotele.Non un saggio di pura filosofia, perch l autore cala nella realt , con esempi concreti, le diverse teorie filosofiche che esamina mi aspettavo, confesso, una trattazione pi dal pu [...]

  14. If you think Justice and Philosophy are things you don t really care about or something you consider as way too complicated to learn about , then I recommend you to pick this book and add it into your personal bookshelves I bought this book due to my passion on debating and I thought this book will improve my speech quality It turned out, Michael J Sandel fulfills my expectation.Nay, he exceeded my expectation.Here s my review 1 Sandel gives a comprehensive overview toward all basic philosophies [...]


  15. A run through of civil and political philosophies of some of the greats Kant, Rawls, Aristotle and how they would approach existing problems in today s societies Not devoid of his own philosophies, the author tended to take the same concepts and twist them to fit his argument which I found slightly infuriating In the end, he asked for a robust public engagement with our moral disagreements to provide a stronger, not a weaker, basis for mutual respect I can t help but wonder how dismayed he must [...]

  17. What should the college educated person know about ethics What are the most relevant and helpful tools in terms of concepts and theories in guiding lives to use increased mindfulness in understanding the ethical decision making of our own, of others, and for the Common Good I am reviewing Sandel s work from the perspective of an instructor of ethics and considering it for adoption as a course text.One lament in academic philosophy is that the field lost their complete claim to ethics since newer [...]


  18. Justice What s The Right Thing to Do By Michael J Sandel Justice What s The Right Thing to Do is a fascinating book about practical justice Harvard law professor Michael Sandel takes his very popular class to the public and hits upon the most fascinating and controversial topics in an even handed approach This excellent 320 page book is broken out in the following ten chapters 1 Doing the Right Thing, 2 The Greatest Happiness Principle Utilitarianism, 3 Do We Own Ourselves Libertarianism, 4 Hire [...]


  19. I live in a country where the head of state seems to think that his duties to the people he governs are restricted to ensuring that they have the chance to become as prosperous as possible, this being the highest good he can provide them nevermind the fact that his modus operandi for doing so is deeply flawed he seeks to enable the very wealthy to become even wealthy claiming that this increases the size of the cake and hence the size of everyone s slice a piece of sophism that has disproved it [...]


  20. First I should say right at the beginning that the title is a bit misleading I don t think there is a single issue in which Sandel tells us explicitly the right thing to do But he does give what seems to me a very clear description of various ways of thinking about justice He examines utilitarianism greatest good for the greatest number , then the absolute privileging of freedom of choice both from the libertarian largely economic and from the liberal egalitarian views of Immanuel Kant and John [...]

  22. Totally recommended this for wanna be philosophers This is written in plain, simple language, that are also very practical and realistic The author manages to introduce each philosophy back up with each example, then refute each philosophy I have not finished yet but I am in love with it so far I read this alongside with my online Harvard University s course Great book


  23. publiusnapkin.wordpress 20I greatly enjoyed the first two thirds of Michael Sandel s new book, Justice A Reader, which only made the final third disappointing Sandel begins his book with a long and fruitful discussion of philosophical thought, ranging from Rousseau to Nozick to Rawls, with compelling thought experiments and concise explanations of the different schools of thought In the end, Sandel argues that each school falls short, in part due to neglecting the moral legitimacy of communal b [...]
