The official dedication, which was titled “Excellence in Teaching: Honoring the Career of Michael Sandel,” included a video presentation on Sandel’s popular undergraduate course, “Justice,” and comments by a number of his former graduate student teaching fellows, many of whom are currently professors at various colleges and universities across the country.

Sandel has taught political philosophy at Harvard since 1980. His books include “Liberalism and the Limits of Justice,” “Democracy’s Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy,” and “The Case Against Perfection: Ethics in the Age of Genetic Engineering.”
