Sam Harris talked about his book The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values. He argues that most people are mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge and seeks to tear down the wall between scientific facts and human values. He demonstrates that enough is known about the human brain and its relationship to events in the world to say that there are right and wrong answers to the most pressing questions of human life. He responded to questions from members of the audience.

This program of the Texas Book Festival was held in the C-SPAN/Book TV Tent. The program opens and closes with scenes from the festival. close
