Description

"The End of Faith articulates the dangers and absurdities of organized religion so fiercely and so fearlessly that I felt relieved as I read it, vindicated....Harris writes what a sizable number of us think, but few are willing to say."—Natalie Angier, ?New York Times
In ?The End of Faith?, Sam Harris delivers a startling analysis of the clash between reason and religion in the modern world. He offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs—even when these beliefs inspire the worst human atrocities. While warning against the encroachment of organized religion into world politics, Harris draws on insights from neuroscience, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism to deliver a call for a truly modern foundation for ethics and spirituality that is both secular and humanistic. Winner of the 2005 PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction.

    From BethaninCanada
    Sam Harris asks uncomfortable questions that get to the bedrock of the problems facing civilization. No other author is more relevant on the subject of religion. You can not credibly discuss the subject of religion without understanding the arguments made by Sam Harris. Buy his books, listen to his podcasts- this is the cutting edge of modern day philosophy.
