Book Discussion & Signing: Why Buddhism is True

Sep 11, 2017

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


Robert Wright will discuss and sign Why Buddhism Is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment ($27.00 Simon & Schuster). 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.
