globally best-selling author
Religion and rationality
Spirituality in a secular age
Sam Harris is a neuroscientist, philosopher and big-picture thinker on the direction humanity is heading.
He is the author of five New York Times bestsellers. His books include The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, The Moral Landscape, Free Will, Lying, Waking Up, and Islam and the Future of Tolerance (with Maajid Nawaz). The End of Faith won the 2005 PEN Award for Nonfiction.
Sam's writing and public lectures cover a wide range of topics - neuroscience, moral philosophy, religion, meditation practice, human violence, rationality - but generally focus on how humanity's growing understanding of itself and the world is changing our sense of how we should live.
Sam's work has been published in more than 20 languages and has been discussed in The New York Times, Time, Scientific American, Nature, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and many other leading media outlets. He has written for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Economist, The Times (London), The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, The Annals of Neurology, and elsewhere.
He is also the host of the popular "Waking Up" podcast.
Always accessible and engaging, Sam tackles the big questions of our time: What does science tell us about free will and morality? How are debates between religion and rationality shaping human relations? What does this mean for the future of conflict? How can we reconcile spirituality and reason in a secular age?
