The Most Powerful Man in the World: Sapir Whorf on the Meaning of “A Strong” Thesis
This article has been updated to reflect that the term “strong thesis” is not used by Sapir.
The original article continues below.
The Nobel Prize-winning economist, and his wife have a new project in mind for the Nobel Peace Prize.
In the book “The Strongest Thesis,” which will be published in 2019, Sapir argues that the most important political principle in any society is that of justice, according to the title of his new book.
“We can say that the only political principle that can ensure justice is justice, and it is justice that is the greatest political principle,” said Sapir, who has written several books on political theory.
“Justice is the most fundamental concept that can guarantee the unity of human life.”
Sapir said he plans to publish the book in 2019 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Nobel Prize for Economics, which is given each year in Stockholm.
“A strong thesis is an absolute requirement for a political society,” Sapir said.
“That is why we must always try to find an example of a society that respects the principle of justice.”
He added: “I believe that this is a great gift of the human spirit.
I am not a politician, but I have a feeling that this principle can guarantee a more peaceful world.”
