A CONVERSATION WITH ROBERT WRIGHT AND STEVEN TIERNEY

Robert Wright is the New York Times bestselling author of The Evolution of God, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, as well as Nonzero and The Moral Animal. He is also known as one of the nation's foremost public intellectuals and an expert on evolutionary psychology.

His new book Why Buddhism is True is the first book to combine evolutionary psychology with cutting-edge neuroscience to defend the radical claims at the heart of Buddhist philosophy. He leads readers on a journey through psychology, philosophy, and meditation to show how and why Buddhism can serve as the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age.

Join CIIS Community Mental Health Professor Steven Tierney for a conversation with Robert about his journey exploring psychology, philosophy, and meditation to show how Buddhism holds the key to moral clarity and enduring happiness.
