Excellent survey course
Professor Sandel gives an excellent survey of some of the most important philosophies in western thought. He clearly conveys the philosophies and puts them into context via current examples. Highly recommended!
A modern classic
I took this course 25 years ago and still remember some of the lessons. The most important of which is that there are completely different moral systems ( categorical and utilitarian) and that we all vacillate between them depending on the issue at hand our personal perspective. That and John Rawls rocks.
Harvard university sounds like a school I would like to go to!
Harvard university is a great school in my opinion and I have a friend who wants to go to Harvard.
