Robert Wright stops in
to let us know
Why Buddhism Is True
Robert Wright will be reading and answering questions regarding Why Buddhism Is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment. The New York Times Book Review says, "The goal of Why Buddhism Is True is ambitious: to demonstrate ‘that Buddhism’s diagnosis of the human predicament is fundamentally correct, and that its prescription is deeply valid and urgently important... Wright's book is provocative, informative, and...deeply rewarding."
Mr. Wright is one of the nation’s foremost public intellectuals and an expert on evolutionary psychology. The author of four erudite and accessible bestselling books on science, history, and religion (including The Moral Animal and The Evolution of God), Wright has now produced a deeply personal exploration of how natural selection has inclined us toward delusion and unhappiness—and how we can escape this fate and find happiness through meditation and philosophy.
