I received an email from Fishpond this morning telling me that my copy of the new Sam Harris book, The Moral Landscape, is on its way and should arrive early next week. I'm very much looking foward to reading this, and will drop some other things to comment on it - the issues raised go to the heart of what this blog is all about.
So, just a heads-up for the moment. I'm sure we're in for some interesting discussions of the nature and point of morality, etc.
PS. I expect to find things to disagree with in this book, but it's exactly the sort of book that I want to see written, now that Harris and others have opened the door to a popular debate about religion and the fundamentals of morality. It's the kind of thing that now adds value.
Harris has, perhaps, done more than anyone to open the door. Many of us owe him a debt for that.
