    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".

    gerald says: "The book says what many feel, but fear to say"
    "I could not finish it I was so disappointed"
    Overall

    This may well be a fine thesis. However Sam Harris argues through very poor inferential logic which is based upon premises that derive strictly from his arbitrary prejudices. Immanuel Kant already did this, but his categorical imperative was at least an honest try by a man who did not know anything about evolutionary biology, primate studies in moral empathy and altruism, or the fact that there is much evidenced that morality is an emotional process to a far higher degree than an intellectual one.

    This was a complete waste of my time. I quit 2/3 through. Don't but this book.
