Default Re: Values Added: Expanding the Circle (Robert Wright & Peter Singer)

I'm okay with the speculative claims as long as the person who makes them understands they are speculative. A huge number of our beliefs cannot be proved empirically. We navigate the waters of life on a raft of provisional assumptions. What annoys me is when people think their speculations constitute true claims about the ultimate nature of reality, humanity, what have you. The trouble with bad evolutionary theories of human behavior is that they are fundamentally essentialist in a way that our methods of inquiry cannot support.
