Inhaltsangabe

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.

Finally a view on spirituality I can stand behind!

Sam Harris explains perfectly the benefits of practicing meditation and being spiritual without the guru nonsense. His way of explaining and using words is quite amazing and very easy to listen to. This book gave me a way more relaxed view on this topic and strengthened my own spiritual path! Thank you Sam! #keeponrocking

Very interesting new perspectives, an excellent book with some minor flaws

Sam Harris provides an excellent case for secular spirituality. In some parts he is a bit overconfident in his views, taking a seemingly superior position which objectively can never be reached. Also his stance on some drugs, especially LSD can be seen as unscientific, wildly understating the risks of such drugs, whilst wildly overstating the potential importance for spiritual growth.

Awesome book, read too fast

I'm fascinated by Sam, but he reads way too fast for the profundity of what he's saying to sink in

Honest, insightful and masterfully integrative

An honest, and nsightful read masterfully integrating views and insights across seemingly unrelated fields. A must-read.

Excellent meandering view of spirituality

This was a good book by and read by Sam Harris. Touched on a lot of interesting things including the potential role of meditation and psychedelics in spirituality and a rationality of spirituality
