“The Great Debate” at ASU: can science tell us right from wrong?

We thought some of our readers would be interested in a symposium devoted to neuroscience and ethics that was held recently at Arizona State University. Here is a description of the event:

The Great Debate, held at Arizona State University on November 6, brought together a renowned group of scientists, philosophers, and public intellectuals to discuss whether advances in neuroscience and evolutionary psychology have significantly impacted how we understand the concept of morality. Panelists Steven Pinker, Sam Harris, Patricia Churchland, Lawrence Krauss, Simon Blackburn, and Peter Singer were joined by The Science Network’s Roger Bingham for a wonderful night of discussion and questions from the audience.
