ASU's 'Great Debate' on NPR's 'Science Friday,' Nov. 5
Tune in to NPR (KJZZ) at noon on Friday, Nov. 5, to hear Lawrence Krauss, Steven Pinker, Simon Blackburn and Sam Harris discuss with
host Ira Flatow the impact advances in neuroscience might have on traditional concepts of morality. Among other questions to be raised: 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 program will advance a larger discussion at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6, at ASU Gammage entitled, “The Great Debate: Can Science Tell Us Right From Wrong?” It is presented by the ASU Origins Project in cooperation with the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, the Faculty of Philosophy of Cambridge University, and The Science Network.
Tickets are available at the Gammage Box Office (480.965.3434) or at ticketmaster.com.
