Lunch & Learn with Michael Sandel

Tuesdays, March 20 and 27

noon-1:00 p.m.

Bring a bagged lunch and watch a lecture by Harvard Professor Michael Sandel titled “Justice: What’s the Right Thing To Do?” When Sandel hosts political philosophy lectures in the U.S. and England, he draws audiences of more than 1,000 people.  His style is engaging because he uses the Socratic style to inspire participants to carefully examine their closely-held beliefs. Discussion will follow the lecture.

Michael Sandel teaches political philosophy at Harvard University.  He has been described as “the most relevant living philosopher,” a “rock-star moralist,”(Newsweek) and “currently the most popular professor in the world.”(Die Zeit)

His writings—on justice, ethics, democracy, and markets—have been translated into 27 languages. His legendary course “Justice” is the first Harvard course to be made freely available online and on television.  It has been viewed by tens of millions of people around the world, including in China, where Sandel was named the “most influential foreign figure of the year.” (China Newsweek)
