What's the Right Thing To Do?
I would like to make a recommendation for the lecture
Justice: What’s the right thing to do? by Michael Sandel, given at Havard University. It is an introduction on moral reasoning.
A warning in advance: you cannot unlearn what you have learned. This lecture will change your way of thinking and consequently your reasoning.
You can find it on the well-known centralized video platform by that North-American company. The mobile application of the video platform clips the episodes titles unfavorably which makes it hard to navigate. Here are the episodes in order:
- Episode 01 “The Moral Side Of Murder”
- Episode 02: “Putting A Price Tag On Life”
- Episode 03: “Free To Choose”
- Episode 04: “This Land Is My Land”
- Episode 05: “Hired Guns”
- Episode 06: “Mind Your Motive”
- Episode 07: “A Lesson In Lying”
- Episode 08: “Whats A Fair Start?”
- Episode 09: “Arguing Affirmative Action”
- Episode 10: “The Good Citizen”
- Episode 11: “The Claims Of Community”
- Episode 12: “Debating Same-Sex Marriage”
I wish I would have experienced such a lecture format during my studies. The interactivity and open discussions are impressive.1 The audience does not shy away from hard questions and is striving to keep discussions on the “high level”.
you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do: start watching. :)
To be honest, I found it weird when the lecturers started to remember the student’s names. ↩
