Current Book: “The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good?” by Michael J. Sandel, 229 pages. See Amazon: https://amzn.to/3cYTciM
“Many of us need what [Sandel] does so well: help us grapple with the unexpected and uncomfortable questions that history delivers us . . . Now’s a good time for both sides to sit down for a very serious talk, with The Tyranny of Merit required reading for all.”
―Arlie Hochschild, New York Times Book Review
“Astute, insightful, and empathetic, Sandel exposes the cruelty at the heart of some of our most beloved myths about success. A must-read for anyone struggling to understand populist resentment, and why, for many Americans, the American Dream has come to feel more like a taunt than a promise. A crucial book for this moment.”
―Tara Westover, author of Educated
“Sandel is the most important and influential living philosopher . . . [His] new book offers a profound critique of individualism, making the case for the move away from self to community, from ‘my wants now’ to ‘the common good.”
―Paul Collier, Times Literary Supplement
