I'm a huge fan of the first two sessions (or maybe I should say, feel they are extremely important contributions to the discourse.....)

Back in October I tried to find out if there was to be a third. Maybe I gave up to easily?

Now off to download this year's event.

I haven't actually managed to watch the videos yet but downloaded them all and converted them to a more convenient format. Maybe I'll pop them in during a road trip this weekend.

Great stuff. I had not realized that Beyond Belief 2008 was out until I stopped by this group. I loved the last two years seminars. I was especially pleased to see the emphasis on Human Flourishing and Eudaimonics this year.

I just finished watching day 1, which is all that is available on line right now. Again this year, it is great, so far. The last subject, 'This Is Your Brain On Morality', continues the dialogue with Harris, Haidt, and Churchland. I have been intrigued with Haidt's five categories of morality and feel that it is a good heuristic for understanding people I don't share a world view with, particularly religious people, political conservatives, political liberals who apologize for horrible people, and academic liberals of the post-
modernist ilk. I am still on the fence with utilitarianism and group selection. Anyway, lots of good stuff to think on. It came out last night (Friday) and I stayed at home watching it all night. Maybe this is why my social life is not flourishing. Mims
