Mankato Critical Thinking Club August Meeting

Can Science Answer Questions on Morality?

Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But can science be an authority on moral issues?

We will be exploring this question by viewing two separate presentations. The first by primatologist Frans de Waal, who has focused his research on empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity in animals, will demonstrate how many of these moral traits exist beyond the human species. In another, neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris will argue that science can and should be an authority on moral issues.
