FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Click Here to reserve your seat!
Because we are expecting a full house, we are reserving guaranteed seats for Friends of the Center who request one. This way, we do not risk having to turn away those who enable such events with their financial support. There will be a VIP section for Friends of the Center.
If your membership will be active on the day of the event (October 21st), we can reserve a seat for you and one guest.
Please claim your seat by 6:45 p.m., or we have to open it up to other guests.
Deadline to reserve a seat is Monday. If you don't have a reserved seat just make sure you arrive in plenty of time before the event fills up.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. To request a seat reservation, go to our
Reservation Page. We will then check your Friend of the Center status and let you know if we can reserve a seat for you. If your membership will expire before October 31st, or if you are not currently a member, you can become a Friend of the Center by going to our
Sign-Up page. Individual membership is $60.00 per year; students can join for $20.00. Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But in his new book
The Moral Landscape, Harris argues that science can -- and should -- be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life. An outspoken proponent of skepticism and science, his two books --
The End of Faith and its follow-up
Letter to a Christian Nation -- have become New York Times Bestsellers. Harris received a degree in philosophy from Stanford and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA.
The End of Faith won the 2005 PEN Award for Nonfiction. Mr. Harris's writing has been published in over ten languages. He and his work have been discussed in
The New York Times,
Rolling Stone, and many other journals. After the talk, Sam Harris will sign books. Please also join us in Fuller Hall to mingle and talk.
