Publisher's Summary

Sam Harris discusses his latest book, The Moral Landscape.
About The Moral Landscape:
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.

Bad sales pitch for a good product

I listened to this presentation and I read the book. In fact, I've read everything Harris has written. And here's the thing, this is not that great of a presentation. But the book is well worth it. Harris attempts to generate from scratch a whole new way of examining morality and ethics and building a moral code from the ground up in a logical, scientific way. And he succeeds. The book, Moral Landscape is great. But this intro to it is lacking in the excitement and genius of the full book. Skip this, buy the book.
