Sam Harris first book i The End of Faith i ignited a worldwide debate about the validity of religion In the aftermath Harris discovered that most people from religious fundamentalists to non believing scientists agree on one point science has nothing to say on the subject of human values Indeed our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the most common justification for religious faith It is also the primary reason why so many secularists and religious moderates feel obligated to respect the hardened superstitions of their more devout neighbors br br In this explosive new book Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well being viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a moral landscape Because there are definite facts to be known about where we fall on this landscape Harris foresees a time when science will no longer limit itself to merely describing what people do in the name of morality in principle science should be able to tell us what we i ought i to do to live the best lives possible br br Bringing a fresh perspective to age old questions of right and wrong and good and evil Harris demonstrates that we already know enough about the human brain and its relationship to events in the world to say that there are right and wrong answers to the most pressing questions of human life Because such answers exist moral relativism is simply false and comes at increasing cost to humanity And the intrusions of religion into the sphere of human values can be finally repelled for just as there is no such thing as Christian physics or Muslim algebra there can be no Christian or Muslim morality br br Using his expertise in philosophy and neuroscience along with his experience on the front lines of our culture wars Harris delivers a game changing book about the future of science and about the real basis of human cooperation, In response to i The End of Faith i Sam Harris received thousands of letters from Christians excoriating him for not believing in God i Letter to A Christian Nation i is his reply Using rational argument Harris offers a measured refutation of the beliefs that form the core of fundamentalist Christianity In the course of his argument he addresses current topics ranging from intelligent design and stem cell research to the connections between religion and violence In i Letter to a Christian Nation i Sam Harris boldly challenges the influence that faith has on public life in our nation, As it was in Anna Karenina Madame Bovary and Othello so it is in life Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals financial fraud government corruption even murder and genocide generally require an additional moral defect a willingness to lie br br In Lying bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie He focuses on white lies those lies we tell for the purpose of sparing people discomfort for these are the lies that most often tempt us And they tend to be the only lies that good people tell while imagining that they are being good in the process, In i The End of Faith i 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 br br Winner of the PEN Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction
