We're hosting our third Book Reading Group looking at topics in the news.
This time we have chosen from the suggestions UE people sent in:
'The Tyranny of Merit: what's become of the common good?' by Michael Sandel.
We'll be discussing over 5 sessions:
Tuesdays 7.30pm - 8.45pm
22 February, 8 March, 29 March, 12 April, 3 May
We have selected this particular book to get us thinking and discussing - is valuing merit always a good thing? What about luck, humility and consideration of the common good?
We hope it aligns with the values of Urban Expression too... we will see!
Some of you may be familiar with Michael Sandel as The Public Philosopher (Radio 4), gathering people from across the world (virtually) to discuss challenging ethical issues. He has a calm and considered manner which holds space for differing views to be heard peacefully.
