About this book
An explosive book now in paperback, that calls an end to religion's monopoly on morality. 'Sam Harris breathes intellectual fire into an ancient debate. Reading this thrilling, audacious book, you feel the ground shifting beneath your feet. Reason has never had a more passionate advocate.' Ian McEwan
Our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the primary justification for religious faith. This book intends to link morality to the rest of human knowledge. It argues that science can do more than tell how we are; it can, in principle, tell us how we ought to be.
