Navigating the Moral Landscape


The Moral Landscape:
How Science Can Determine Human Values

(by Sam Harris)

. . . I was one of those who had unthinkingly bought into the hectoring myth that science can say nothing about morals. To my surprise, The Moral Landscape has changed all that for me. It should change it for philosophers too. Philosophers of mind have already discovered that they can't duck the study of neuroscience, and the best of them have raised their game as a result. Sam Harris shows that the same should be true of moral philosophers, and it will turn their world exhilaratingly upside down. As for religion, and the preposterous idea that we need God to be good, nobody wields a sharper bayonet than Sam Harris. - Richard Dawkins

Join Plato's Cave philosophers for a provocative exploration of science and the moral landscape as argued by Sam Harris in his new book.

Be sure to check the Plato’s Cave discussion and files sections where you can read, post and download documents that are relevant to this topic.
