Sam Harris’s book The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values is now out. I have been offered a review copy but have yet to see it.

Sam says some interesting things.
I am sure many will find faults with his book but he has certainly started a much needed discussion on the possibility of an objective basis for morality.
