NHK: The Ultimate Choice – Michael Sandel’s global classroom [video]

Michael Sandel leads a video-linked global classroom, broadcast on NHK television (Japan) with students in Tokyo, Shanghai, and at Harvard.

Sandel and the students discuss the ethical and global implications of the 2011 Japanese earthquake and nuclear disaster:  What accounts for the strong communal response of the Japanese public to the crisis?  Should nuclear power be abandoned in favor of safer energy sources?  Does the outpouring of global support for Japan in the aftermath of the earthquake suggest that, in a global age, human sympathy and concern can transcend national boundaries and cultural differences?
