Michael J. Sandel is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government at Harvard University. His recent book, Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?, an international best seller, relates the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of our time.
His legendary 'Justice' course is the first Harvard course made freely available online (www.JusticeHarvard.org) and on television, and has been viewed by millions throughout the world. Sandel's work has been translated into 18 languages and been the subject of television series in the U.S., the U.K., Japan, South Korea, Sweden, Brazil, and the Middle East. NDTV is broadcasting his Justice Television series in India (which began on March 3), every Saturday at 10 p.m. on NDTV Profit, and Sundays at 10 a.m. on NDTV 24x7. This telecast has been sponsored by N.R. Narayana Murthy, Chairman Emeritus, and his Family Foundation.
Sandel has been a visiting professor at the Sorbonne (Paris), delivered the Tanner Lectures on Human Values at Oxford University, and in 2009 delivered the BBC Reith Lectures, broadcast in the U.K. and worldwide on the BBC World Service. In 2010, China Newsweek named him the 'most influential foreign figure of the year' in China.
In the U.S., Sandel has served on the President's Council on Bioethics and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Council on Foreign Relations. A graduate of Brandeis University, Sandel received his doctorate from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar
Sandel's new book, What Money Can't Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets, will be published this April.
Penguin Press will make his book, Justice: What's the right thing to do? available at the lecture venues.
