The BBC is looking for people, anyone other than professional philosophers (philosophy students are fine), to take part in a giant debate….
The Global Philosopher
On 18 November 2016, BBC Radio 4 is hosting a debate about meritocracy. Sixty people from all over the world will be “dialling in” – using Skype-like technology – to a state-of-the-art facility at Harvard Business School to discuss this topic with Professor Michael Sandel (and with each other), while hundreds of other participants will be observing the debate and contributing to it via an online platform. Professor Sandel will spend about 90 minutes guiding the audience through the issues and confronting them with moral and ethical dilemmas along the way. If you’d like to take part, please register your interest via this web form http://bit.ly/297PQYH and the production team will reply with further information.
It would be great to get some feminist philosophers involved!
