According to a recent press release, 

Harvard University Professor and author of Justice: What’s the Right Thing To Do? Michael Sandel challenges audiences to examine the moral and ethical assumptions underlying the most hotly debated political and social issues. One of Foreign Policy‘s Top 100 Global Thinkers, Sandel was described by Kirkus Reviews as “the professor we all wish we had.”
