The class will be reading and discussing “The Moral Landscape” [First Free Press trade paperback version published September, 2011!!] by Sam Harris, a neuroscientist. Mr. Harris reviews the age-old questions of right and wrong, good and evil, bringing a fresh perspective to the discussion. He proposes we already know enough about the brain and its relationship to events in the world that there are right and wrong answers to the most pressing questions of human life – answers that neither moral relativism nor religion can satisfactorily provide.
