The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values

Sam Harris, read by the author, Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, seven CDs, 7 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4423-0014-9
Harris argues forcefully for the superiority of science over religion as a means of determining morality and understanding the subtle gradations between permanent truths and culturally and historically determined values. Harris reads his own book, and the passion of his writing does not always come through in his own performance: he reads more than performs, his voice never quite conveying the emotion or certainty that fills nearly every sentence of his book. Still, there is a knowingness in his voice that reminds us that it is the author himself speaking, and readers might appreciate that feeling of intimacy. A Free Press hardcover. (Oct.)
