Michael Sandel on The Colbert Report

Questions of right and wrong confront us all the time and from all directions. Unfortunately, most of us are not equipped with the necessary philosophical background to think about them consistently, systematically and with a view to their logical implications.

Luckily, Professor Michael Sandel from Harvard University has an entire course (which we have already featured in its entirety) devoted to thinking philosophically about everyday moral issues.

But as if that weren't awesome enough already, Professor Sandel recently paid a visit to Stephen Colbert to talk about how to think philosophically about questions of justice ranging from whether it is fair for ARod to make so much money while teachers barely manage to scrape by to whether it's fair for Harvard students to pay ridiculous amounts of money for a course that you can watch freely on youtube :)

And if you want to watch the Justice course, here are all the episodes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.
