Beschreibung

For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’ new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.
From multiple New York Times best-selling author, neuroscientist, and "new atheist" Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the 30 percent of Americans who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds. Throughout the book, Harris argues that there are important truths to be found in the experiences of such contemplatives - and, therefore, that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow.
Waking Up is part seeker’s memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris - a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic - could write it.

Interesting, one might say eye opening

A book that needed to be written. If you're like me and have always been repulsed by the mumbo jumbo around meditation and 'spirituality' but had the nagging feeling that there might be a few pearls hidden beneath all the bullshit, Sam Harris clear minded and rational exploration of these topics is something you've been waiting for. Highly recommended.

Spannend

Obwohl es ein Sachbuch ist, konnte ich es kaum aus der Hand legen.
Eine gut ausgewogene Geschichte rund um das Bewusstsein.
