An Encounter with Michael Sandel: "The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good?"

It is with immense pleasure that Sciences Po and CEVIPOF invite you to an encounter with Michael Sandel, world-renowned Professor of Political Philosophy at Harvard University, to discuss his book The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good? (La tyrannie du mérite, Albin Michel)

Following the enormous success of Justice: What’s the Right Thing To Do? (2017) Professor Sandel now explores the central question of our time: What’s become of the common good? He argues that in order to overcome the various crises that are currently upending our world, we must rethink attitudes toward both success and failure that have accompanied globalization and rising inequality.

Professor Sandel’s presentation will be followed by comments from CEVIPOF discussants Annabelle Lever and Janie Pélabay and finally by an open discussion with the audience present. 

Professor Sandel will be happy to sign copies of his book after the session has ended.

Participation is free but registration is required: Please register here
