At this Sunday’s Humanist Forum we will watch Michael Sandel talk about “The Moral Side of Murder” with his students. Afterwards, Alex Havasy will facilitate a discussion of our reactions to the video.

Michael Joseph Sandel (born 1953) is an American political philosopher and the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government Theory at Harvard University Law School, where his course Justice was the university’s first course to be made freely available online and on television.

His many books include The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good?; What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets; Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?; The Case against Perfection: Ethics in the Age of Genetic Engineering; Public Philosophy: Essays on Morality in Politics; Democracy’s Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy; and Liberalism and the Limits of Justice.
