Abstract:

Can we do without religion? Can we have ethics without God? Is there such a thing as "atheist spirituality"? In this short but powerful book, the internationally bestselling author André Comte-Sponville addresses these questions through an illuminating philosophical exploration of atheism. He argues that religion and spirituality have become unnecessarily entwined in contemporary Western culture and offers a convincing argument for a new form of spiritual life. A new and uplifting perspective on a subject that has been the cause of much divisiveness, The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality sends a message of tolerance and celebrates the human need to connect to one another and the universe.
