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:

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”.

And now, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do: start watching. :)

  1. To be honest, I found it weird when the lecturers started to remember the student’s names.
