    • I just finished Sam Harris's book The Moral Landscape. I found it to be an interesting argument but I wouldn't expect people who are religious to like it too much. He's pretty critical of religion in it but makes what I think is a good argument for a science of human values. In essense he argues for using our knowledge and understanding of the human brain and condition to make the world one that has a higher level of well-being.

    • Well-being according to what or who?

      Is well-being an ideal? Are ideals, ideal? Is it possible that ideals are the very reason man is not in a natural state of well-being?
