Abstract

Sam Harris has been waiting to write ‘Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion’ for over a decade. This may surprise some. The subject matter – dealing reverently with human spiritual experience – is at odds with Harris’ (in)famous public persona as a strident critic of religion. Yet, for the last 20 years Harris, who has degrees in philosophy and neuroscience, has been on a personal quest in search of ‘transformative insights about the nature of one’s own consciousness’.
