And on the neuroscience theme . . . .

I mentioned the project hosted by the Ethics and Public Policy Center back in 1998. The EPPC website no longer carries details, and it would seem that the mooted book project did not work out.

However, a lengthy review that states it is based on transcripts is available at:http://www.naturalism.org/neurosci.htm.
As the url indicates, the review sets out from a naturalistic perspective, and among other things critiques the generally non-naturalistic views of those who took part in the original conference (who included Bill Bennett, who gave the keynote) as unable to offer the kind of account of ethics in the face of reductionism that it set out to do – claiming that naturalism is better suited to the task.
