The Book of Atheist Spirituality: An Elegant Argument For Spirituality Without God

Andre Comte-Sponville

A brilliant, elegant argument for spirituality without God. Can we do without religion? Can we have ethics without God? Is there such thing as ‘atheistic spirituality’? In this powerful book, the internationally bestselling author Andre Comte-Sponville presents a philosophical exploration of atheism - and reaches startling conclusions.Atheists, Comte-Sponville argues, are no less interested in a spiritual life than religious believers. But by allowing the concept of spirituality to become intertwined with religion and dogma, humanity has lost touch with the nature of a true spiritual existence.Using rigorous, reasoned arguments and clear, concise, and often humorous prose Comte-Sponville draws on both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions to propose the atheistic alternative to religion, based on the human need to connect to each other and to the universe. In doing so, he offers a convincing treatise on a new form of spiritual life.
