Overview

More than 14,000 students have taken Justice, making it one of Harvard's most popular courses. In a trailblazing partnership with WGBH Boston, Harvard is opening its classroom to the world. Professor Michael Sandel's course aims to help viewers become more critically minded thinkers about the moral decisions we all face in our everyday lives. Sandel presents students with ethical dilemmas on modern day issues -- such as affirmative action and same-sex marriage -- then conducts lively, engaging, and remarkably intimate debates that challenge students' moral reasoning. Justice aired in September, 2009 on PBS.

Very thought provoking. Can understand why this class is so popular at Harvard. Professor Sandel is amazing at keeping you thinking about the different moral issues and perspectives for the situations he lays out. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to be challenged.
