The Moral Landscape (again)

Here’s a terrific review (by philosopher Michael Ruse) of Sam Harris’s new book, The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values: Little ‘Value’ in New Harris Book

According to Ruse, the book’s key flaws are a) the author’s excessive enthusiasm for personal attacks, and b) the author’s hubris in believing that he had found “the secret that has eluded David Hume and G. E. Moore, and just about every professional philosopher of the twentieth century….”

Ruse’s bottom line:

If God wanted to destroy New Atheism, getting this book written was a good start. Although, as I said at the beginning, perhaps the first divine move was making Sam Harris so famous he thought he could get away with it.
