Justice by Michael J. Sandel

Book Description

Justice brings together in one indispensable volume essential readings on justice and moral reasoning. With readings from major thinkers from the classical era up to the present, the collection provides a thematic overview of the concept of justice. Moreover, Sandel's organization of the readings and his own commentaries allow readers to engage with a variety of pressing contemporary issues. Looking at a host of ethical dilemmas, including affirmative action, conscription, income distribution, and gay rights, from a variety of angles-morally, legally, politically-the collection engages with the core concerns of political philosophy: individual rights and the claims of community, equality and inequality, morality and law, and ultimately, justice. With concise section introductions that put the readings in context, this anthology is an invaluable tool for students, teachers, and anyone who wishes to engage in the great moral debates that have animated politics from classical times to our own.

Breakthroughs in genetics present us with a promise and a predicament. Although most people find at least some forms of genetic engineering disquieting, it is not easy to articulate why. This work explores these and other moral quandaries connected with the quest to perfect ourselves and our children.

Public Philosophy by Michael J. Sandel Public Philosophy, Paperback (October 2006)

Focuses on some of the moral and political issues, such as affirmative action, assisted suicide, abortion, gay rights, stem cell research, the meaning of toleration and civility, the gap between rich and poor, the role of markets, and the place of religion in public life.

Democracy's Discontent by Michael J. Sandel Democracy's Discontent, Paperback (March 1998)

What ails democracy in America today, and what can be done about it? This work traces the political predicament to a defect in the public philosophy by which we live. The author identifies the dominant public philosophy of the 1990s and finds it flawed.
