[OP-ED]: Rather than heading to the silver screen, take a moment this summer to look inward

 06/16/2017 - 12:30
Try Michael Sandel’s “Justice: What’s the Right Thing To Do?,” which covers a wide range of thought provoking questions about civic life and describes the philosophical foundations for competing impulses. (The wonderful 12-hour Harvard lecture series is available to view on YouTube, as well.)
English

 Last week, I packed my husband and two sons off to enjoy their much-anticipated viewing of the new superhero movie “Wonder Woman.”

I used to partake in such outings to the summer action blockbuster, but by the time “Wonder Woman” came out, I was already sick and tired of being browbeaten by countless feminine-power “hot takes” and “think pieces,” plus the inevitable reports of outrage.

[OP-ED]: En lugar de dirigirse a la pantalla grande, dedique un momento este verano a la introspección

Recomiendo “Justice: What´s the Right Thing To Do?”, de Michael Sandel, que cubre una amplia gama de interesantes preguntas sobre la vida cívica y describe los fundamentos filosóficos de impulsos contradictorios. (La maravillosa serie de 12 horas de lecciones de Harvard está disponible en YouTube, también.)
Spanish

La semana pasada, envié a mi esposo y a mis dos hijos a disfrutar de la muy anticipada película de súper héroes, “Wonder Woman”. 

Antes, solía ser parte de esas salidas al cine para ver la película de acción del verano, pero para cuando se estrenó “Wonder Woman”, ya estaba harta de las innumerables promociones y análisis sobre el poder femenino, más las inevitables expresiones de indignación.
