批評家のレビュー

“Astute, insightful, and empathetic, Sandel exposes the cruelty at the heart of some of our most beloved myths about success. A must-read for anyone struggling to understand populist resentment, and why, for many Americans, the American Dream has come to feel more like a taunt than a promise. This book is just what we need right now.” (Tara Westover, author of Educated)

“The Tyranny of Merit deftly exposes the flaws and fallacies of meritocratic philosophy. In lucid, illuminating prose, Sandel makes a compelling case for uprooting inequality and building a fairer society shaped by true principles of justice. A seminal work.” (Darren Walker, president, Ford Foundation)

あらすじ・解説

This program is read by the author.

The world-renowned philosopher and author of the best-selling Justice explores the central question of our time: What has become of the common good?

These are dangerous times for democracy. We live in an age of winners and losers, where the odds are stacked in favor of the already fortunate. Stalled social mobility and entrenched inequality give the lie to the American credo that "you can make it if you try". The consequence is a brew of anger and frustration that has fueled populist protest and extreme polarization and led to deep distrust of both government and our fellow citizens - leaving us morally unprepared to face the profound challenges of our time.

World-renowned philosopher Michael J. Sandel argues that to overcome the crises that are upending our world, we must rethink the attitudes toward success and failure that have accompanied globalization and rising inequality. Sandel shows the hubris a meritocracy fosters among the winners and the indignities it inflicts on those left behind. And he offers an alternative way of thinking about success - more attentive to the role of luck in human affairs, more conducive to an ethic of humility and solidarity, and more affirming of the dignity of work. The Tyranny of Merit points us toward a hopeful vision of a new politics of the common good. 

A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux

"This is a remarkable book about justice. In his unique and powerful moral voice, Michael Sandel digs at the roots of our divisions, dissects the causes of inequality, and dismantles the lazy orthodoxy of those on the left and the right. Accessible and profound, The Tyranny of Merit is a revelatory assessment of pervasive unfairness in our society, driven in part by a naïve and myopic reliance on the notion of merit. In a time of easy rhetoric and thoughtless tribalism, this provocative book is a must-read for anyone who still cares about the common good. You will catch yourself wondering, again and again, 'Why have I never thought of it that way?' No good faith reader will come away from this book unchanged." (Preet Bharara, former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York and author of Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment, and the Rule of Law)

"Astute, insightful, and empathetic, Sandel exposes the cruelty at the heart of some of our most beloved myths about success. A must-read for anyone struggling to understand populist resentment, and why, for many Americans, the American Dream has come to feel more like a taunt than a promise. This book is just what we need right now." (Tara Westover, author of Educated)

"The Tyranny of Merit deftly exposes the flaws and fallacies of meritocratic philosophy. In lucid, illuminating prose, Sandel makes a compelling case for uprooting inequality and building a fairer society shaped by true principles of justice. A seminal work."

Enlightening

"The Tyranny of Merit" is one of the most enlightening books I've read in the last few years. If you're frustrated or confused about the state of not only the nation but also the world, Mr. Sandel will shed some light on why society is reacting the way it is. The gradual and seductive governing of society through meritocracy and "incentivization" has a dark side and it is that very force that is driving some groups, sometimes unwittingly, to protest, revolution, and violence. In the US, powerful groups are branding socialism as the antithesis to the American Dream in an attempt to hold onto power. Ironically, socialism may be the best thing to save it.

Idealistic problematic read

Despite plausible ideas and important discussions around the power of markets, dignity of work and solidarity, Sandel sadly advocates for socialism with “sheep’s skin”.

The extended criticism on the model society is currently based , with education as one of its pillars, is also pointless without a proposal on a replacement model. Good read with disputable points.

A prophet for out time

Everyone should read this book. You will recognize the truth and wonder why for so long you’ve been seduced while also troubled by the idea of meritocracy. It will change every decision you make from now on.

Good but repetitive

There’s thesis of the book is covered well and it includes plenty of fascinating detail. However, several times I checked my app to see if I had accidentally skipped to a previous chapter because the language sounded so familiar that I was sure I’d already heard it. A good editor could cut the length of the book in half by eliminating redundancy.

A very timely read

I read this book after also reading Wilkerson's book on caste. It was a very compatible read continuing many aspects of examining the same subject of the sources and solutions to inequality in our time. Little can be more salient to the moment.

Excelente! Um livro que, após lido, faz pensar diferente!

Excelente! Este livro aborda, com muita clareza, os riscos que corremos ao adotarmos a meritocracia como um valor, um ideal, e utilizá-la para justificar as desigualdades. Interessante também o resultado da pesquisa sobre os preconceitos que as pessoas com nível superior (graduação) possuem sobre as que não têm. Este é mais um livro fantástico do Michael Sandel, do mesmo nível do “Justiça: a coisa certa a fazer.” Impossível lê-lo e terminar pensando o que se pensava antes.

What I Suspected, But Couldn't Have Articulated

All my life, I've heard the rhetoric of meritocracy, and both doubted it and aligned with it. To hear such a commentator as Professor Sandel, a Harvard Law Professor and BBC Reith Lecturer state the plight of the common people so keenly, fortifies and solidifies my resolve in making civic choices going forward. The sad part is that few will hear this, especially those who most need to. Recommend this book to everybody.

Digesting and Massaging

I am still digesting this book...lot to digest. In my simple mind I was reminded of when there were a lot of flack about how children ...all children should be given recognition. A child who won a race, competition etc. shouldn't be the only one recognized or awaded...all who participated should be recognized..

I found the parts about how the financial...speculations d ok nvm"t contributors to actual growth depressing and truthful. I as ls I feel higher education has not contributed in teaching g, exposing the minds to CiVIC duty or addressing how common good is an important mor a l and ethical principle we should valye.

As I wrote I am digesting this book like another book "Evil Geniouses" which I found dovetails with this study/ st ory. I liked how the a author commented on Warren Buffett who expressed his bewilderment of Americans not enraged how whe markets were keept the growth of in c one inequality. growing.

Not the origin but movies like Wall Street ushered in the glamourization of Greed and made breaking our concept of a "Social Cintract" acceptable and in a way an essential principle "to get ahead."

I. Hope and wish we can find a way out of this messy nightmare. I understand what was said about "Credentialism" but if one doesn''t even have sense, common sense "Credentials/Degree" doesn't really help one. Can't have d I discussions if th e p series involved doesn't have common sense as a starting point.
