Book review: Justice by Michael J. Sandel

Online event

Each month, the Austin Software Co-operatives Meetup reviews a topic or book that helps us discover the best ways to structure a software co-operative.

Join us in August for a discussion on Distributed Justice, based on the book "Justice: What's The Right Thing To Do?" by Michael J. Sandel.
In this meetup, we will explore how to apply different ethical frameworks for seeking distributed and fair outcomes within a group.

Feel free to read the book before the meetup and share your observations or join the meetup to hear our in-depth review and analysis (no prior experience required). "Justice: What's The Right Thing To Do?" is widely available from booksellers in print, e-Book and Audio formats. There are also several recordings featuring this topic on Harvard University's YouTube channel.

RSVP to receive your meeting link before the start of the meetup.
