Broad in scope, deep in its analysis, and controversial to its core, The Science of Good and Evil applies the latest findings of science to offer an original model of the bio-cultural evolution of morality and a new theory of provisional ethics.

The book challenges the reader to confront timeless issues from a new perspective — one that suggests that...

  • both morality and immorality evolved in human biological and cultural evolution
  • we can make free moral choices in a determined universe
  • moral principles can have a sound rational basis supported by empirical evidence (without being dogmatically absolutist or dependent on an external source of validation)
  • and that we can be good without God.
