Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But in his new book The Moral Landscape , Harris argues that science can -- and should -- be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.
An outspoken proponent of skepticism and science, his two books -- The End of Faith and its follow-up Letter to a Christian Nation -- have become New York Times bestsellers. Harris received a degree in philosophy from Stanford and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA. The End of Faith won the 2005 PEN Award for Nonfiction. Mr. Harris' writing has been published in over ten languages. He and his work have been discussed in Newsweek, TIME, The New York Times, Scientific American, Rolling Stone, and many other journals.
"Read Sam Harris and wake up." --Richard Dawkins
