Sandel on flutes, golf, gay marriage and the Aristotlean political (as in, polis-centered) spirit

Interesting talk from Michael Sandel, apropos to what I was talking about yesterday re: virtue ethics and the need to support the whole community. Fascinating stuff, really!

The official blurb:

Democracy thrives on civil debate, Michael Sandel says — but we’re shamefully out of practice. He leads a fun refresher, with TEDsters sparring over a recent Supreme Court case (PGA Tour, Inc. v. Martin) whose outcome reveals the critical ingredient in justice.

Michael Sandel teaches political philosophy at Harvard, exploring some of the most hotly contested moral and political issues of our time.
