Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? by Michael J. Sandel

Δικαιοσύνη. Τι είναι το σωστό;
4th Greek edition, Polis, September 2012

Δικαιοσύνη. Τι είναι το σωστό; by Michael J. Sandel

Again, I would say 3,75 stars. I really enjoyed the first half of the book: it was intuitive, honest and deeply philosophical (it is philosophy after all). If you’ve never had any experience with Ethics it is a good introduction to some of the most renowned philosophers – from Aristotle to John Rawls. It explains the theory of Kant – whom I never, and still don’t, liked – in a modern day manner without making you feel like an idiot. During the last part of the book I got the impression of a preaching on ethics, which I didn’t really appreciate, but I guess it was a slippery slope for a book concerned with justice, human rights, philosophical questions of society, etc.

It was a surprisingly fast read for a non-fiction book. Give it a try and you might be pleasantly surprised as well.
