Discussion of Harris

Before I got sidetracked by holiday travel and moving, I was hoping to have a bit of a discussion about Sam Harris’ book The Moral Landscape. I only got as far as bringing up some of the issues surrounding a potential accurate lie detector.

Tristan has now put up a post in response to the book: Are Beliefs in the Head?. He is planning to put up more bit by bit.

Once I have dug myself out from under various urgent tasks, I will try to put more here and on BuryCoal.

[Update: 5:30pm] Tristan has another post up on Harris’ book: What are “Values”, anyway?

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
