Summary

The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good? by Michael J. Sandel: Conversation Starters

The Tyranny of Merit is Sandel's latest work where he directs us to an unusual yet optimistic political perspective aimed to achieve more positive governance for the common good. Sandel aspires for a new political system geared towards a more hopeful society. He reveals that in moving forward and overcoming the barriers capsizing our times, we must modify our views on what it means to succeed and what failure entails. Sandel suggests a shift in our paradigms of thinking. In the conquest for a re-engineered politics and economy, he offers alternative actions with great emphasis on the virtue of humility, the function of luck, and the paramount importance of the dignity of work.
