The Most Popular Class at Harvard

If you’ve ever wondered about what it would be like to attend class at Harvard University, FORA.tv, Inc. has the site for you. They run a website that gathers the web’s largest collection of unmediated video drawn from live events, lectures, and debates at universities, think tanks and conferences.

One of the recent lectures was by Michael Sandel.  Sandel has been teaching political philosophy at Harvard University since 1980. Rumor has it that his course is the most popular one on campus. His classroom holds about a thousand students.

This is a condensed version of his popular university class Justice: A Journey in Moral Reasoning.

In it, he analyzes the meaning of justice in the modern world.

    Wow I thought it had to be the teachings of Karl Marx. The place is aptly called Moscow on the Hudson for good reason. They don’t teach critical thinking skills there, if you are wired and rich you get in.
