I’m wondering whether and how Sam Harris’ dissertation might be made available to the public? Will it be posted here on the site somewhere as a PDF for example? I, and I’m sure many others on this forum would be interested to read it when it’s finished!

Send him an email and ask him to consider posting it.  Also, depending on what school he does it at (UCLA?) it would probably be (eventually)  in their library.

Thanks for your response! Since the question was pretty mundane I thought I’d ask the community before troubling Sam Harris with it directly. As for the UCLA library, I understand it’s common practice to keep all student dissertations but living in Japan as I do a jaunt across the Pacific is out of the question. wink

LOL
It’s 5478 miles across the Pacific from Tokyo to LA, so if depending on how quickly you can jaunt, at 10 miles per hour, you could arrive in 547.8 hours, or app. 23 days.  cheese

Because of Sam’s status as an already published author, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has it published for a wider audience… he’ll probably “mill” it for a number of paper presentations as well, which could end up somewhere on the Internet.
Welcome to the Forum Karrer.
