Ƶ The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values list ძ Book Author Sam Harris ᅉ Ƶ The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values list ძ Book Author Sam Harris ᅉ Sam Harris s first book, The End of Faith, ignited a worldwide debate about the validity of religion In the aftermath, Harris discovered that most people from religious fundamentalists to nonbelieving scientists agree on one point science has nothing to say on the subject of human values Indeed, our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the most common justification for religious faith It is also the primary reason why so many secularists and religious moderates feel obligated to respect the hardened superstitions of their devout neighbors In this explosive new book, Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values, arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well being, viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a moral landscape Because there are definite facts to be known about where we fall on this landscape, Harris foresees a time when science will no longer limit itself to merely describing what people do in the name of morality in principle, science should be able to tell us what we ought to do to live the best lives possible Bringing a fresh perspective to age old questions of right and wrong and good and evil, Harris demonstrates that we already know enough about the human brain and its relationship to events in the world to say that there are right and wrong answers to the most pressing questions of human life Because such answers exist, moral relativism is simply false and comes at increasing cost to humanity And the intrusions of religion into the sphere of human values can be finally repelled for just as there is no such thing as Christian physics or Muslim algebra, there can be no Christian or Muslim morality Military Robots Mapping the Moral Landscape Philosophers have wrestled over morality and
