Harvard University political philosopher Michael Sandel teaches Harvard's most popular course. It's called "Justice," and explores the often thorny moral and ethical issues underlying the news. Is torture ever justified? Should we bribe people to be healthy? Should a nation be allowed to buy the right to pollute? Sandel returns to Forum to talk about justice.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Michael Sandel, political philosopher and professor of government at Harvard University and author of books including "What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets"
