The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good? 社會面貌的扭曲真相:我們該如何扭正社會不平等,政治和道德不正確?

Stay with us for an essential conversation about how to move beyond the polarized politics of our time. In his best-selling book, The Tyranny of Merit, American political philosopher and Harvard Law School Professor, Michael J. Sandel argues that we must rethink the attitudes toward success and failure that have accompanied globalisation and rising inequality. Tonight he offers an alternative way of thinking about success – more attentive to the role of luck in human affairs, more conducive to an ethic of humility, and more hospitable to a politics of the common good. With Angela Mackay, Managing Director of the Financial Times, Asia Pacific.  In ENGLISH, and available online 24 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.

Michael J. Sandel 是美國政治哲學家和哈佛大學法學院教授。在他的暢銷書The Tyranny of Merit中,他認為我們生活在一個充滿贏家和輸家的時代,在這個時代,幸運的人永遠擁有多重機會。 為了克服當今時代兩極分化的政治,我們必須重新考慮自已對伴隨全球化和不平等加劇而有的成功和失敗的態度。今晚,他提供了另一種思考成功的方式-更關注運氣在人類事務中的作用,更有利於謙卑的道德規範,更對共同利益的政治熱情好客。活動將由亞太區金融時報董事總經理 Angela Mackay主持。節目以英語進行,中文字幕將於24小時後提供在線上觀看。
