Here is Michael Sandel at TEDTalks discussing the importance of debate in American politics.

Here you can find a very entertaining video of Mr. Sandel teaching a course about justice and the morality of murder. Sandel is the author of a book called Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?, which is about the intersection of government, morality, and economics. If you're interested in asking Mr. Sandel a question about either of these videos, or listening to him talk in person, he's reading at Temple De Hirsch Sinai tonight at 7 pm. The reading is free, and it's the reading of the night. Other readings, including a boozy discussion about genes, a mystery author, and much more can be found in our reading calendar.
