Sam Harris needs to publish his conversation with Omer Aziz

March 7, 2016

On December 27, 2015, Yale law student Omer Aziz wrote an article for Salon blasting Sam Harris. In this article, Aziz ranted and rambled endlessly about Harris without pausing for breath. He demonstrated that he was unfamiliar with Harris’ actual views and, like so many others on the Regressive Left, decided to hold Harris accountable […]

I don’t always agree with Sam Harris

I am a big fan of Sam Harris. I think he speaks intelligently and lucidly on many volatile topics, and this is extremely valuable. I tend to agree with the vast majority of what he tends to say, but this is not a result of some sycophantic obsession I have with him, or a tendency […]

Sam Harris is a mental force of rationalism in the highest degree.  I strain to disagree with this man on everything he writes, and I find myself unable to do so.  A possible exception to this rule may be his analogy of morality to a 3D landscape that he argued in his latest book, The […]
