He eviscerates the major arguments for ...
The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life

Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path ...

The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values
Sam Harris’s first book, The End of Faith , ignited a worldwide debate about the validity of religion. In the aftermath, Harris discovered that most people—from religious fundamentalists to non-believing scientists—agree on one point: science has nothing to say on the subject of human values. Indeed, our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the primary justification for religious faith. In ...
