Talking About Justice



Three noted scholars talk about justice. Nobel Prize-winner Amartya Sen, in The Idea of Justice, writes about how to achieve social justice in a world where cultures have widely differing beliefs. Michael Sandel, one of Harvard’s most popular professors, teaches that right and wrong are not black and white in Justice. Dambisa Moyo, who rocked the development world with her book Dead Aid, asks what is just for Africa.

Justice: Torture and human dignity. Michael Sandel


Is torture ever justified? What if innocent lives are at stake? This excerpt from the BBC documentary “Justice: A Citizen’s Guide to the 21st Century” examines the debate between Kantians and utilitarians on human dignity.

Suppose a man has planted a bomb in New York City, and it will explode in twenty-four hours unless the police are able to find it. Should it be legal for the police to use torture to extract information from the suspected bomber?
