    Inhaltsangabe

    From one of America's greatest minds, a journey through psychology, philosophy, and lots of meditation to show how Buddhism holds the key to moral clarity and enduring happiness.

    Robert Wright famously explained in The Moral Animal how evolution shaped the human brain. The mind is designed to often delude us, he argued, about ourselves and about the world. And it is designed to make happiness hard to sustain.

    But if we know our minds are rigged for anxiety, depression, anger, and greed, what do we do? Wright locates the answer in Buddhism, which figured out thousands of years ago what scientists are discovering only now. Buddhism holds that human suffering is a result of not seeing the world clearly - and proposes that seeing the world more clearly, through meditation, will make us better, happier people.

    In Why Buddhism Is True, Wright leads listeners on a journey through psychology, philosophy, and a great many silent retreats to show how and why meditation can serve as the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age. At once excitingly ambitious and wittily accessible, this is the first book to combine evolutionary psychology with cutting-edge neuroscience to defend the radical claims at the heart of Buddhist philosophy. With bracing honesty and fierce wisdom, it will persuade you not just that Buddhism is true - which is to say, a way out of our delusion - but that it can ultimately save us from ourselves, as individuals and as a species.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "I have been waiting all my life for a readable, lucid explanation of Buddhism by a tough-minded, skeptical intellect. Here it is. This is a scientific and spiritual voyage unlike any I have taken before." (Martin Seligman, professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and best-selling author of Authentic Happiness)
    "This is exactly the book that so many of us are looking for. Writing with his characteristic wit, brilliance, and tenderhearted skepticism, Robert Wright tells us everything we need to know about the science, practice, and power of Buddhism." (Susan Cain, best-selling author of Quiet)
    "Robert Wright brings his sharp wit and love of analysis to good purpose, making a compelling case for the nuts and bolts of how meditation actually works. This book will be useful for all of us, from experienced meditators to hardened skeptics who are wondering what all the fuss is about." (Sharon Salzberg, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society and best-selling author of Real Happiness)

    The Author is way to mind oriented.

    I got the feeling the author didn't understand the buddhist concept properly, otherwise he wouldn't try to analyze and understand everything in details and especially in a rational way.

    The buddhists try to go away from this overanalyzing, evaluating and need of understanding.

    I don't feel the author really got this and he seems to be sure that he figured out the most things already but i believe he is just not open minded.

    I hope the author will progress further and really get the buddhist teachings at one point.

    Not worthwhile listening

    Much too many words for a meager content. It starts promising, but becomes repetitive and dull.

    Great book

    Great book. Robert Wright at his best. The narrator's sounds a times slightly metallic and could be improved.

    Great scientific, non-esoteric view on Buddhism

    The book covers the key areas of Buddhism which everyone can benefit from without making spiritual, religious or esoteric claims. The title is is very bold and almost made me not buy the book. However, the author explains why he chose this title. I still think it is not a good choice since it does not fit the scientific approach of the book (that is, claiming "the truth" is not a scientific approach to anything). I particularly enjoyed the honesty of the author of himself not being great at mindfulness. As someone who is deeply rooted in a scientific and achievement-oriented approach to life I always have struggled myself with mindfulness and meditation. Therefore, it made the topic more accessible to me listening to someone who himself struggled with it.

    Be happier and understand your mind

    Fascinating facts from science, like modular functioning of our minds driven by feelings. Great narrator!
