Sam Harris on spirituality without religion


Guest: Sam Harris

In his new book, Waking Up, SAM HARRIS asks if it is possible to be spiritual without being religious. Harris, one of the “new atheists” who has been highly critical of religion in his previous books, says spirituality through meditation makes people happier and more ethical. The book is part memoir, part science and Harris joins us in the studio to talk about it.
