Please use this topic to discuss the February 2014 philosophy book of the month Moral Tribes by Joshua Greene
What do you think of the book? Would you recommend it to others? Why or why not? On what points do you agree with Greene? On what points do you disagree with Greene and why?
If reading the book is a requirement for commenting, I'm out. So, if you can supply his thesis and perhaps an argument or two, I might be interested in the issue. From what I tell, it looks like a brain scientist discussing how moral decisions are made. I'm not sure how neurological study shows right from wrong. It sounds like moral psychology, which appears to deny the existence of free will, and hence the existence of morality itself.
If I don’t respond, assume that your comment isn’t worthwhile or that I’ve already addressed your concerns. If that’s not palatable, assume that you’re right. Feel free to pick the conclusion that helps you to feel good about yourself.
