      Book Review: 'The Altruists,' By has uncorked a lively, tragicomic debut novel, a probe into questions that never get old: What constitutes a good, moral life, and how do you pull it off in. In The Moral Landscape, Sam Harris () proposes that science can be used to identify values, which he defines as “facts that can be scientifically understood: regarding positive and negative social emotions, retributive impulses, the effects of specific laws and social institutions on human relationships, the neurophysiology of happiness and suffering, etc.” (pp. 1–2).

    Narrative vacillation may reflect moral vacillation. However, "Redwing" overplays this literary game. The second novella, "Notes on Plains Warfare," is a sober memoir crafted by brooding, intellectual U.S. Army officer -- an American Thucydides.   By making a series of modifications to the problem, a ‘trolleyologist’ like Greene can probe the drivers of his subjects’ moral decision-making. Greene concludes that utilitarian decision-making, predicated on the equal value of all human lives, is the correct or ‘moral’ solution to the Trolley Problem.
