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.
