Sam Harris interviewer Steven Pinker

Twilight of Violence

An Interview with Steven Pinker

By Sam Harris – October 3, 2011

Sam Harris IconSteven Pinker is a Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, the author of several magnificent books about the human mind, and one of the most influential scientists on earth. He is also my friend, an occasional mentor, and an advisor to my nonprofit foundation, Project Reason.

Steve’s new book is The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined. Reviewing it for the New York Times Book Review, the philosopher Peter Singer called it “a supremely important book.” I have no doubt that it is, and I very much look forward to reading it. In the meantime, Steve was kind enough to help produce a written interview for this blog.

Kilometerlang debat her. Moralvidenskab? Lyder ikke særligt godt. Det stort anlagte arrangement har fået en del omtale på ateistiske sites, men jeg vil nu foreslå, at man vælger lidt ud, for der sker ikke meget nyt her.

Jeg synes, at ateisternes koryfæer generelt er begyndt at køre i ring og der er ikke mange spor af den videnskabelighed, deltagerne snakker så meget om. Jeg er ikke sikker på, at disse videoer egentlig var min tid værd:

The Great Debate: Can Science Tell Us Right from Wrong?

On November 6th, 2010 a panel of renowned scientists, philosophers, and public intellectuals gathered to discuss what impact evolutionary theory and advances in neuroscience might have on traditional concepts of morality. If human morality is an evolutionary adaptation and if neuroscientists can identify specific brain circuitry governing moral judgment, can scientists determine what is, in fact, right and wrong? The panelists were psychologist Steven Pinker, author Sam Harris, philosopher Patricia Churchland, physicist Lawrence Krauss, philosopher Simon Blackburn, bioethicist Peter Singer and The Science Network’s Roger Bingham.

Recorded live at the Arizona State University Gammage auditorium.

“The Great Debate” was sponsored by the ASU Origins Project in collaboration with the ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law Center for Law, Science and Innovation; the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge; and The Science Network.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
