Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?
This is the title of a book by Michael Sandel which was a NY Times bestseller. It is book on the big questions in political philosophy and covers issues such as bank bailouts, equality and inequality, taxes, immigration, affirmative action, the role of markets, national service, same-sex marriage, the place of religion in politics and other ethics dilemmas of our times.
A website has been set up by Harvard University, which shows his lectures on a range of these ethical issues with questions for thought and reflection. A fascinating resource for those looking to take philosophy and ethics further!
