Ok, so maybe one small part of Harvard. But a part I can guarantee is pure brainfood. I previewed the upcoming national event with Professor Michael J. Sandel a couple weeks ago, so I thought I’d post his TED Talk below. Especially check out his comments at the end: our teleforum on Sunday began with his idea of a widespread, engaged discussion of the philosophical questions underpinning our most passionate political debates. Timely, isn’t it?
I’m getting pretty excited about the teleforum. We’re going to have academics, readers, and the simply curious on the call, asking questions and responding to Sandel’s informal polls (“Is price gouging during a natural disaster ethically wrong?”). Oh man oh man.
