Description

The 15th LaFontaine-Baldwin Lecture by Michael Sandel

Opening night of 6 Degrees Citizen Space

September 25, 2017

Doors open at 7:00 pm

MORE TICKETS RELEASED!

Does democracy have a future? What ails democracy and what can be done about it? Does populism reflect hostility to immigrants or a legitimate reaction to rising inequality? Join Harvard professor and world-famous political philosopher Michael Sandel for the 15th LaFontaine-Baldwin Lecture.

Sandel has been called a “rock-star moralist” and the “most relevant living philosopher” for his Socratic style, challenging listeners to work through controversial ethical dilemmas.

Since 2000, the LaFontaine-Baldwin Lecture has gathered Canadians to reflect on democracy, citizenship and the public good. The series honours the leaders of Canada’s first democratic movement, Louis-Hippolyte LaFontaine and Robert Baldwin. Established by John Ralston Saul and hosted for the past decade by the ICC, the lecture series honours their legacy.

The LaFontaine-Baldwin Lecture is part of 6 Degrees Citizen Space, a 3-day event that connects thinkers and doers to drive the global conversation on inclusion and citizenship. The second annual Citizen Space takes place in Toronto from September 25-27, 2017.

6 Degrees is presented by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship. For detailed program information please visit 6DegreesTO.com.
