The Moral Landscape

Sam Harris

Overview

The question of right and wrong is often avoided in scientific discussions and, for many people, moral questions are left to religion to answer. Questions about how we should live, raise our children, relate to friends, and treat our enemies are usually understood as subjective and dependent on cultural context. We associate scientific facts with the fields of physics and mathematics, and never consider that they could provide us with answers relevant to our well-being, happiness, and quality of life.

Sam Harris is a philosopher, neuroscientist, and author of five New York Times bestsellers. In his books, Harris covers the topics of religion, moral philosophy, and neuroscience, promoting the idea that science can help us live a better life.

In The Moral Landscape, Harris explores how scientific insights can determine human values and open up discussion on moral questions.

"Just as there is no such thing as Christian physics or Muslim algebra, we will see that there is no such thing as Christian or Muslim morality."
