公正课是哈佛建校以来最受欢迎的课程之一。每年,近千名学生挤进哈佛的historic Sanders 礼堂去聆听Sandel教授讲述公正、平等、民主与公民权。现在,哈佛的这门课程向全世界开放,该是你踏上这曾使一万四千名学生神魂颠倒的旅途,去对道德进行沉思的时候了。这项课程旨在帮助听众在面临日常道德抉择的时候能够更好地运用批判性思维。
Justice is one of the most popular courses in Harvard’s history. Nearly one thousand students pack Harvard’s historic Sanders Theatre to hear Professor Sandel talk about justice, equality, democracy, and citizenship. Now it’s your turn to take the same journey in moral reflection that has captivated more than 14,000 students, as Harvard opens its classroom to the world. This course aims to help viewers become more critically minded thinkers about the moral decisions we all face in our everyday lives.
在这个十二集的系列中,Sandel教授让我们置身于两难的道德窘境中,并听取我们如何对其进行正确处理的意见。而后,他会让我们在新的情境中再斟酌我们的答案。其结果常常是出人意料的,这揭示出重大的道德问题从来不是黑白分明的。通过整理出这些矛盾,我们的道德判断将更加犀利,从而我们可以更好地运用明晰的道德观念去理解在民主政治中我们所遇到的不同主张。
In this 12-part series, Sandel challenges us with difficult moral dilemmas and asks our opinion about the right thing to do. He then asks us to examine our answers in the light of new scenarios. The result is often surprising, revealing that important moral questions are never black and white. Sorting out these contradictions sharpens our own moral convictions and gives us the moral clarity to better understand the opposing views we confront in a democracy.
“(Sandel)可以在如此庞大的教室里很有效率地进行引导,像一位指挥挥斥方遒。他所制造的道德窘境十分尖锐,以至于惟一的解脱途径就在于思考。”
“(Sandel) is able to conduct remarkably effective dialogues in those large classes, like a conductor picking out a wind here, a brass there. He poses moral dilemmas so acute one could escape the agony only by thinking.”

这门课程同样提及与探讨了许多当今社会的热点话题,例如同性婚姻,反歧视运动,爱国主义和人权。同时,Sandel教授向我们展示了一个看待貌似熟悉的矛盾的全新视角。他认为通过思考这些当下的道德窘境,找出我们自己在想什么,为什么这么想,可以使我们可以成为更好的公民。
This course also addresses the hot topics of our day—same sex marriage, affirmative action, patriotism and rights—and Sandel shows us that we can revisit familiar controversies with a fresh perspective. Professor Sandel believes the process of thinking our way through the difficult moral questions of our day—figuring out what we think, and why—helps make us better citizens.
“他是我所见过的最优秀的教师。他很有才华,可以不着痕迹地让一个讲座变得平易,并且接近苏格拉底式的讨论。”
“He is the greatest teacher I have ever seen. He is able, without visible effort, to make a lecture to students seem like an intimate, Socratic dialogue.”
