Harris on Meditation:

A short while ago I wrote:

Sam Harris and Robert Wright are an extremely important part of [a theory I am trying to articulate] because they too seem to be "on" to some of these things, but have credibility with hard nosed scientific, skeptically minded folks. Not that "credibility" with anyone matters in terms of truth discovery (that's just another form of the appeal to authority logical fallacy). But I do want to show that these things are compatible with hard nosed scientific skepticism and philosophy 101.
