Discussion of Harris

2011-01-04

in Daily updates

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?
