Tyranny of Merit book cover and info regarding book club

Humanities Center Book Club

Thursday, September 1, 2022
4:30 pm
212 MacMillan Hall (The Great Room)

In conjunction with author Michael Sandel's virtual visit to Miami University on September 7, the Humanities Center is organizing faculty and staff small-group discussions around his latest book, The Tyranny of Merit; Can We Find the Common Good? Both Sandel's visit and the book club coincide with the 2022-23 Altman Program "Contesting Authority".

The Humanities Center will provide a free copy of The Tyranny of Merit to the first 150 faculty and staff members who express an interest in participating in this book club, which will meet at 4:30 p.m. on September 1, almost a week prior to Sandel's talk. Participants will be divided into small groups of five or six at the event itself.

If you wish to receive a free copy of the book, please complete this form.

If you already own the book and simply wish to participate in this discussion without receiving a free copy, you are of course more than welcome (and no RSVP is needed at this time).
