Breaking the Spell
Religion as a Natural Phenomenon
Daniel C. Dennett
Breaking the Spell by Daniel C. Dennett is a thought-provoking exploration of the controversial topic of religion's impact on our lives and our future. Dennett asks why we believe in God and delves into the role that belief plays in our lives, our interactions, and our country. With a spirited narrative that ranges through history, philosophy, and psychology, Dennett argues that it's time to shed the light of science on the fundamental questions of faith. This eye-opening book is not an antireligious screed, but rather a timely and insightful exploration of the relationship between divinity and human need that will be read and debated by believers and non-believers alike.
