    Description

    Sam Harris has discovered that most people, from secular scientists to religious fundamentalists, agree on one point: science has nothing to say on the subject of human values. Indeed, science’s failure to address questions of meaning and morality has become the primary justification for religious faith. The underlying claim is that while science is the best authority on the workings of the physical universe, religion is the best authority on meaning, values, morality, and leading a good life. Sam Harris shows us that this is not only untrue; it cannot possibly be true.

    Bringing a fresh, secular perspective to age-old questions of right and wrong, and good and evil, Harris shows that we know enough about the human brain and how it reacts to events in the world to say that there are right and wrong answers to the most pressing questions of human life. Because such answers exist, moral relativism is simply false – and comes at increasing cost to humanity.

    Using his expertise in philosophy and neuroscience, along with his experience on the front lines of the cultural war between science and religion, Harris delivers an explosive argument about the future of science, and about the real basis of human relationships.

    A must read

    This book will not only help you but the world as well. It's a fascinating approach in the nature of morality and will make you question your own mind and grow into a more rational and nicer person. I know it did for me.

    The most important thinker of our time

    If you could sum up The Moral Landscape in three words, what would they be?

    Probably the most elucidating book ever. The very idea that science can contribute to and has something to say about morality is eye-opening. I recommended this book for my brother who just entered medical school. Harris's arguments are overwhelmingly persuasive and if, God forbid ;), he died today, his contribution to society would have equalled 50,000 lifetimes of ordinary men. Bravo, Mr. Harris. I'm still speechless.

    Does not refute Humeian is/ought distinction

    Waste of time, doesn't attempt define "wellbeing" while claiming it's the only worthwhile moral value.

    Science is the closest thing to finding what moral

    Where does The Moral Landscape rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the top books I've listened, and will enjoy repeating the experience again.

    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Realizing that we have more power, knowledge and vision now to discover and understand fundamental truths about our lives, such as morality, values and spirituality. We're underestimating ourselves and let people from 3000 years ago decide what's wrong and right for us.

    Interesting subject, but sometimes hard to follow the story

    I find this book’s subject interesting and important. I like Sam Harris voice, but it is better when he is speaking freely. Here it changes a bit as he reading. I also find it hard to follow the story. There are several interesting parts, but I don’t immediately understand how they interconnect.

    The key to understanding the author's position

    This important philosophical work is getting way too little attention. It ought to be presented as a default topic in middle school education across the planet, but sadly the majority of the population will choose to ignore the message, or even find it offensive.

    FANTASTIC. We, humans, have a long way to go.

    Read this book and se how far from perfection we are. We are still very primitive an so preprogrammed by evolution. And most people are not aware of this and therefore the madness Continues.

    Weird structure

    I like Sam's Waking up podcast so I am quite used to Sam's arguments and his reasoning. And I tend to agree with most of his arguments in general. So I wanted to read this book to have some structured view on this one topic. But this is not it. I found this book to be quite unstructured. Sam spends time arguing his opponents, other ideas or religion, rather than explaining his point of view extensively. Overall I had different expectations and thus I was partly disappointed. But on the other hand I wouldn't say that the book itself is bad. I just like different structure better. Author narrates the book himself which I always like the best. However sometimes the narration was quite quick and also Sam assumes listener/reader already has basic knowledge of philosophy.

    Sam argumentiert eloquent und überzeugend wie man es von ihm gewöhnt ist. Wer sich mit Ethik/Moral beschäftigt sollte dieses Werk gelesen/gehört haben.

    Great book

    The narration was actually quite good, except for one unforgivable flaw: repeatedly pronouncing "et cetera" as
    "ek cetera". Every audiobook has a few mispronunciations, and no single individual can be expected to know how to pronounce every word used in English, but a professional narrator ought to know how to pronounce "etc."

    A "self help" book for society

    Brilliantly broad and honest look at where we are now, how we got here and how we could make the future a better one for all.

    Does not claim to have all the answers or even to be completely accurate on every matter. Instead provides some simple and useful concepts to improve global wellbeing.

    Cannot see how anyone could rationally argue against the core message.

    The moral landscape in the antropocene

    Sam Harris is an important geographer of our times. He has defined wellbeing as the measure of altitude in the moral landscape and produces the corresponding maps. It is indeed obvious that we are not talking about a flat landscape and position definitely matters independent of perspective. We can also imagine from their visible objective data that some mountains will be higher than others in spite of being shrouded in clouds. Discussion about absolute altitude however misses out on three important elements:

    - the erosion of the powerful memes that have shaped and will shape the landscape and which lifespans are often way shorter then we would like them to be.
    - that there is no single road to the visible peaks and that some uphill roads will lead to abysses that other downhill roads would avoid.
    - that we still need memes, creeds or religions to organize the masses who go ahead in the search of the promised land to avoid manslaughter when a lower peak hides the high peak.

    I am certainly not talking about a divine trinity and I hope that the wisdom of the crowds will turn the arguments into a polytheistic or animistic view. In other words an invitation to read this wonderful book about the fact that altitude really matters.

    Great, but...

    Great audiobook, great performance by Sam Harris.

    ...but at least on my version I have some skipping sections, incorrectly edited sentences and weird noises.

    Maybe only 4 or 5 in the whole book, but a little disappointing nonetheless.

    Brilliant. Just sad that Harris didn't talk about our moral duty towards animals. To anyone who reads this review, i wholeheartedly recommend Gary Francione's work on this subject.

    Eye-opening argument for a reason-based approach to morality. In the meanwhile also solves the problem of free will.

    Great book bad audio recording (painful sibilance)

    The book seems very good for the first part I listen to and Harris reads it well however the audio processing, or rather lack thereof, does not correct for Sam's pretty brutal sibilance. This has the effect of his esses penetrating my ears painfully every few seconds and therefore I was unable to endure very much of it. If the volume isn't loud enough I only hear the occasional ssss ssss ssss and cannot understand what he is saying in my headphones, and if I turn the volume up so that he is intelligible, the esses are painfully loud. Because audible uses an annoying DRM format, I was unable to correct this issue, which would have been trivially easy had it been an MP3. Therefore I was unable to enjoyably listen to this audiobook and shall return it.

    Too verbose, not enough essence

    Sure, Sam Harris is an educated man and has the vocabulary and the background knowledge to match it. The beautiful package does not contain enough actually new or smart content.
    I listened to the first hour, so it might get more interesting, but I doubt it.
    I have a fairly elaborated opinion on the subject myself; I personally did not learn anything new or gain anything from the experience.
