Justice is one of the most popular courses in Harvard's history. Nearly one thousand students pack Harvard's historic Sanders Theatre to hear Professor Sandel talk about justice, equality, democracy, and citizenship. Now it's your turn to take the same journey in moral reflection that has captivated more than 14,000 students, as Harvard opens its classroom to the world. This course aims to help viewers become more critically minded thinkers about the moral decisions we all face in our everyday lives. In this 12-part series, Sandel challenges us with difficult moral dilemmas and asks our opinion about the right thing to do. He then asks us to examine our answers in the light of new scenarios. The result is often surprising, revealing that important moral questions are never black and white.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one!
As a lawyer, I am always critical about people talking about Law and Justice to the general public, but this was absolutely amazing.
Very clear, but also informative and coherent!
I've downloaded all the episodes and watch it everyday on the tube.
Fantastic at being both entertaining and thought provoking!
For all students interested in Moral Philosophy, Ethics, Political Philosophy and (frankly) any social science. Michael Sandel's Justice course will only inspire you to want to learn more.
For anybody interested in what the man himself describes in the subtitle of his book as 'doing the right thing' in their lives this will be immensely interesting too!
Incredible work from an incredible professor... aren't those Harvard students lucky to have him!
Very entertaining. Watch the first 11 minutes of the first one and I'm sure you, like I did, will download the rest of the series.
