The Moral Landscape

Editorial reviews

The Moral Landscape

In The Moral Landscape, he takes aim at two targets: moral relativists and religious fundamentalists. He argues, first, that morality is a question of the wellbeing of sentient beings; second, that science can tell us facts about wellbeing; and third, that with the help of science, we can perceive a "moral landscape" with peaks of wellbeing and troughs of suffering.
