    Michael Sandel (Harvard University) has been called “the most famous teacher of philosophy in the world” and his Justice: What is the Right Thing to Do? and What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets have reached far beyond academic audiences as international bestsellers. In Justice, he shows how the political philosophies of Aristotle, Kant, Mill, and Rawls can help us think about the most pressing ethical issues of our time, and in What Money Can’t Buy, he argues that we have “drifted from having a market economy to being a market society.”
