Review

Review- The author says the theme of the book is we evolved the capacity to be moral animals not just act like moral animals , through the use of moral emotions ( the central roll of emotions in this books' morals is a problem why would anyone trust if it feels right over is it the right thing to do , in a dabate with D. Prager he even mentioned that he thought the golden rule was true because it felt right) but mostly I have a problem with his resolution of Hume's is ought problem, which I think is always the most important point in an ethical system, he says what is can determine what you ought to do and that the survival and flourishing of sentient beings - is the fundamental principle of morality , if this form the first principle of his ethics then I should be able to chose my path using this as a guide , I think Aristotle's view , as interpreted by Mortimer Adler that we ought to pursue all those things which are really good for us, is a better guide. Aside from these I enjoyed the book very much and since I would say science informs our morals rather then makes them, there much in this book to inform.
