What are our obligations to others as people in a free society? Should government tax the rich to help the poor? Is the free market fair? Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth? Is killing sometimes morally required? Is it possible, or desirable, to legislate morality? Do individual rights and the common good conflict? Michael J. Sandel's "Justice" course is one of the most popular and influential at Harvard. Up to a thousand students pack the campus theater to hear Sandel relate the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and this fall, public television will air a series based on the course. Justice offers readers the same exhilarating journey that captivates Harvard students. This book is a searching, lyrical exploration of the meaning of justice, one that invites readers of all political persuasions to consider familiar controversies in fresh and illuminating ways. Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, patriotism and dissent, the moral limits of markets—Sandel dramatizes the challenge of thinking through these con?icts, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well. Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise—an essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.

Darf ein Staat Söldner verpflichten, um Kriege zu führen? Ist es moralisch vertretbar, Leute dafür zu bezahlen, dass sie Organe spenden? Dürfen Unternehmen gegen Geld das Recht erwerben, die Luft zu verpesten? Fast alles scheint heute käuflich zu sein. Wollten wir das so? Und was können wir dagegen tun? Mit Verve und anhand prägnanter Beispiele widmet sich Michael J. Sandel dieser wichtigen ethischen Frage. Ist es in Ordnung, wenn Dachdecker nach einem Sturm den Preis für Reparaturen drastisch erhöhen? Warum gilt es als unmoralisch, Leihmütter für das Austragen eines Kindes zu bezahlen? Darf ein Soldat einen Schäfer erschießen, der seinen Spähtrupp an die Taliban verraten könnte, und damit das Leben von vielen Kameraden retten? Anhand solcher Beispiele aus dem realen Leben, aber auch aus Literatur und Weltgeschichte diskutiert Michael J. Sandel die für jede Gesellschaft entscheidende Frage: Gibt es ein allgemeines Kriterium für gerechtes Handeln? Er prüft die Tauglichkeit moralischer Normen und stellt bedeutende Philosophen wie Aristoteles, Kant und Rawls einander gegenüber. Zudem erläutert er sein eigenes Konzept, in dem das Gemeinwohl und der konkrete Nutzen für den Menschen im Zentrum allen Tuns stehen.

In his acclaimed book--based on his legendary Harvard course--Sandel offers a rare education in thinking through the complicated issues and controversies we face in public life today. It has emerged as a most lucid and engaging guide for those who yearn for a more robust and thoughtful public discourse. "In terms we can all understand," wrote Jonathan Rauch in The New York Times, Justice "confronts us with the concepts that lurk . . . beneath our conflicts." Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, the moral limits of markets--Sandel relates the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well. Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise--an essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.

Justice brings together in one indispensable volume essential readings on justice and moral reasoning. With readings from major thinkers from the classical era up to the present, the collection provides a thematic overview of the concept of justice. Moreover, Sandel's organization of the readings and his own commentaries allow readers to engage with a variety of pressing contemporary issues. Looking at a host of ethical dilemmas, including affirmative action, conscription, income distribution, and gay rights, from a variety of angles—morally, legally, politically—the collection engages with the core concerns of political philosophy: individual rights and the claims of community, equality and inequality, morality and law, and ultimately, justice. With concise section introductions that put the readings in context, this anthology is an invaluable tool for students, teachers, and anyone who wishes to engage in the great moral debates that have animated politics from classical times to our own.

Auf welche Weise können moralische Aspekte Einfluss auf die praktische Politik nehmen? Wie wertneutral dürfen sich Staat, Recht und Gesetz verhalten? Diese Fragen bilden den Hintergrund für Michael J. Sandels kluge Betrachtungen zu gesellschaftlichen Streitpunkten – etwa zu den Themen Sterbehilfe, Abtreibung, Homosexuellenrechte oder Stammzellforschung. Auch die moralischen Herausforderungen der Marktwirtschaft, die die bürgerlichen Werte herabwürdigt, spricht er an. Sandel vermittelt dabei die Vision einer gerechten Gesellschaft. Er entwickelt einen staatsbürgerlichen Freiheitsbegriff, der es dem Einzelnen ermöglicht, seine eigenen Wertevorstellungen in die Gemeinschaft einzubringen.
