Michael J Sandel is a philosopher and a professor at Harvard University in Justice and Political Philosophy. He have more than two decades teaching the subject Justice, which has been established as the subject with more registrations Harvard’s history with over 14,000 trainees.

In his book What money can not buy challenges the idea of the supposed neutrality of markets in morally level. Advocating the importance and existence of morality and justice —or lack thereof— in all acts and walks of life not only in the personal but also political, economic and spiritual-religious, areas in this way are affected each other.

This video is one of the twelve chapters of a series co-produced by WGBH and Harvard University called Justice: What is the right thing to do?, where abridged versions of the thinker classes are offered in University.

This chapter is the presentation of the course, which addresses the issue of ethics and morality in the practical sense, deals with moral dilemmas through questions where we must choose what is right. Through a few simple assumptions and dilemmas, Sandel reflects the history and heritage in this vast vast subject of the giants of thought in political philosophy, justice, ethics and morality as Aristotle, Kant, Locke or Stuart Mill. Dilemmas eternal and present in political and moral philosophy from the beginning, always open but that condition our behavior at the individual level but also political and community.
