The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom

I am enjoying reading Michael Shermer’s new book “The Moral Acr: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom.” In this book Shermer discusses his research in the area of humanity’s increasing morality beginning from the Age of Enlightenment. With the advent of the scientific method and associated skeptical and critical thinking culture shifts, humans have moved towards ever increasing moral truths and understanding. In particular, we now live in the golden age of humanity with fewer violent deaths, more wealth and prosperity, and an increased awareness of our impact on our environment. We so often hear or read in the news about all the terrible things happening in the world, but it is important to know that in fact, we are living in amazingly peaceful and prosperous times.
