Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?

Course Description


Justice is one of the most popular courses in Harvard’s history, having taught more than 14,000 students over the course of two decades.



In this course, Professor Michael 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 results are often surprising, revealing that important moral questions are never black and white.



This course also addresses the hot topics of our day—affirmative action, same-sex marriage, patriotism and rights—and Sandel shows us that we can revisit familiar controversies with a fresh perspective.



Each lecture in this course has two parts as well as related readings and discussion guides.
