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)

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.

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.

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.

Interesting thesis. Monotonous reading

I struggled to keep my attention on the (interesting and important) subject due to the very monotonous reading.

The Story Behind Our Current Headlines

If you are curious about how American society got to this fractured junction, then this book is a must read for you. Sandel traces the implications of a merit based society. It is very insightful. A little academic at times, but a thorough, thoughtful explanation of our current society and practical steps for improvement

A Must-Read for Everyone Concerned with the State of the US Democracy

Michael Sandel brilliantly limns the foibles and flaws of even an equitable meritocracy. He demonstrates how globalism coupled with a go-as-far-as-your-talents-and-hard-work-can-take-you philosophy has gotten us: our current cantankerous political divide. By ignoring the bit of luck operative in all of our lives we have come to believe that we have earned our place solely by our own efforts, whether we’re at the top of the economic heap or the bottom. Work that is not highly compensated has been devalued, resulting in hubris and anxiety at the top and humiliation and resentment anywhere below. We must re-establish the value of work and regain a consensus of the common good. This audio is a great start on this path. Let’s get going!
