What will the world be like one hundred years from now? Will human society continue to be guided by the words of ancient gods or will increasing scientific knowledge eventually replace these traditions and serve to create a new morality? In The Moral Landscape, neuroscientist Sam Harris claims that advances in our understanding of the function of the brain will eventually allow for the creation of a new "science of morality".
