For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris's new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. 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.… (més)

Meditation is "waking up". ( )

Amazing book, altered my thoughts about religion, meditation, and psychedelic drugs. Really an eye-opening book that gets you thinking. ( )

A non-fiction book about spirituality without religion. I'm not sure what I expected from this but a lot of the book was about things like meditation and the nature of consciousness. Luckily this is right up my street and I really enjoyed this. The subject matter is very deep and I found myself re-reading several parts of the book. I expect to be revisiting this many times over the years. ( )

There is probably no one who has the "atheist credentials" required to get me to listen to him talk about the value of spirituality more than Sam Harris. That he didn't totally convince me in this book is maybe a sign that I'm a horrible anti-spiritualist.

By "spirituality", he generally focuses on medication and other contemplative/transcendental thought, although psychedelic drugs were discussed, as well as conventional religion. His general argument is that while religion is generally very bad (Islam being approximately the worst, and other Abrahamic religions pretty bad too), there is some value in it, mostly in the form of how to think about consciousness and contemplation. Buddhism is particularly strong here (for a religion), but he discusses forms of not-inherently-religious meditation as well.

Yet again he convincingly demolishes religion, but I'm not sure what value there is in spirituality without it. It did slightly motivate me to explore meditation at some point when not driving at 130kph through Italy, however.

It was interesting hearing how an early MDMA experience and early-20s extensive LSD and psilocybin experiences were instrumental in his life. ( )

After having seen interviews with Harris, had to read this:

Convoluted, confusing, incoherent. Using false dilemmas to make points. Using outliers as examples why non-outliers need to be seen different. Wordy and unconvincing. All in all, very disappointing, discouraging. ( )
