← Jonathan Haidt: Religion, evolution, and the ecstasy of self-transcendence

It's not like we all plug out ears and go la la la when the subject comes up.

For those of you who don't want to buy my book, just email me and I'll send you chapter 9

I listened to most of your talk, and if your book is anything like your talk then I feel as if I would be wasting my time. Some of your thoughts are Deepak Chopra like crazy. No thanks.


Not all plug their ears, but some do. It's a fair inference from Jon's comment that the book cannot be judged by the talk, a point I can attest to. Most of the comments so far are based on misunderstanding. The book won't run to the tastes of those who are more engaged in preserving their views than challenging them, but it's full of interesting ideas and evidence, even if it's largely speculative at this stage.
