The End of Faith Religion Terror Future Reason Sam Harris The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason Price: $13.95
In The End of Faith, Sam Harris delivers a startling analysis of the clash between reason and religion in the modern world. He offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs-even when these beliefs inspire the worst of human atrocities. Harris argues that in the presence of weapons of mass destruction we cannot expect to survive our religious differences indefinitely. Most controversially, he argues that "modernization" of religion poses considerable dangers of its own, as the accommodation we have made to religious faith in our society now blinds us to the role that faith plays in perpetuating human conflict.

This book won the 2005 PEN Award for Nonfiction. The author, Sam Harris, is a graduate in philosophy from Stanford University and has studied both Eastern and Western religious traditions, along with a variety of contemplative disciplines, for twenty years. He is now completing a doctorate in neuroscience, studying the neural basis of belief, disbelief, and uncertainty with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). His newest book delving into this topic, "The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values," is due out in October of 2010.
