11 Republicanism and Freedom

Gepubliceerd op 16 mrt. 2018

Philosopher Michael Sandel talks about the republican conception of freedom, which he characterizes as one that emphasizes the importance of citizens sharing in self-government. Professor Sandel adds that this notion of freedom also emphasizes that participating in self-government requires that people share a sufficiently common life that it is possible to deliberate and debate about what constitutes the common good.

12 Michael Sandel – Antidotes to Populism

Gepubliceerd op 19 dec. 2017

To understand the rise of populism we need to engage and care about questions as dignity of work, uncriticized financialization of market driven economy, growing inequality, missing solidarity and the fear of immigration, says Michael Sandel: we need to disentangle the legitimate grievance underlying the populist revolt from its ugly sentiments and engage it seriously.

13 Michael Sandel: Populism, Trump, and the Future of Democracy

23 apr. 2018

PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO IS AUDIO ONLY. Like the triumph of Brexit in the UK, the election of Donald Trump was an angry verdict on decades of rising inequality and a version of globalization that benefits those at the top but leaves ordinary people feeling disempowered. In this lecture, renowned philosopher Michael Sandel argues that before mainstream parties can hope to win back public support, they should learn from the populist protest that has displaced them—not by replicating its xenophobia and strident nationalism, but by taking seriously the legitimate grievances with which these ugly sentiments are entangled. These grievances are not only economic but also moral and cultural; they are not only about wages and jobs but also about social esteem.
