A former member of the Islamist revolutionary group Hizb ut Tahrir author of Radical and cofounder of the anti extremist think tank Quilliam Nawaz speaks with unique authority about the possibility of Islamic reform Since the publication of The End of Faith Harris has critiqued religion and asserted that reason and science are the true guardians of our deepest human values Islam and the Future of Tolerance is an exemplar of how the fog can lift when hyperbole and posturing are put aside in pursuit of understanding .

No description available, Sam Harris argues against irrational faith and its adherents, 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, 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
