Justice Season

BBC Four is currently doing a season on the theme of Justice, drawing substantially from Prof Michael Sandel's course at Harvard by the same name. The full series of lectures is available here on Youtube and I'm working my way through them at the moment. Sandel has a fascinating way of exploring the ideas of great thinkers across the entire philosophical spectrum. He brings it to life with tangible examples, not in a way which dilutes the ideas, but in a way that teases out every premise, strength and pitfall.

Definitely worth taking some time to listen to and to reflect.
