Sam Harris presents a public lecture on his book, "The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values."
The Moral Landscape tackles the idea of morality and argues against the notion that good and evil, and right and wrong, are unanswerable by science. Harris posits that science can -- and should -- be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life. Along the way, this talk ventures down the avenue of debunking religion as humanity's sole method of dictating between right and wrong.
This lecture was presented On Oct. 7, 2010 by the Center for Inquiry in New York City. The event was held at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. This is the full video, including both the talk and question-and-answer session.
