    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.

    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.

    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.

    Ein tolles Hörbuch

    Es bringt einem nicht bei wie man jetzt genau spiritueller wird, bespricht eher was es überhaupt heißt und inwiefern ist es wissenschaftlich sowas überhaupt zu überlegen. Cooler Buch 👌

    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

    Not Spiritual and not helpful.

    At least it contained no helpful information, for myself.
    The description in this book do not match my experiences.

    Sublime

    Scientific approach to meditation and how to achieve peace and happiness of mind. Loved hearing the thought process of a Psychologist/Psychiatrist. I have been searching high and low for more info on meditation since I attended a meditation program and felt the life changing impact. However the difficulty is most of the time these meditation programs come with Religion mumdo jumbo. I am going to read the other books by this author as well after realising what a gem of information source he is.

    Amazing book. Highly recommended. Thank you, Sam!

    Fantastic content that is read by the author. If you are generally interested in the topic, it does not get any better than this.

    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

    Ein Muss

    Meiner Meinung nach eines der wichtigsten Bücher unserer Zeit. Anders kann ich es nicht sagen.
