Publisher Description

Few forces in the world are as potent as religion: it comforts people in their suffering and inspires them to both magnificent and terrible deeds. In this provocative and timely book, Daniel C. Dennett seeks to uncover the origins of religion and discusses how and why different faiths have shaped so many lives, whether religion is an addiction or a genuine human need, and even whether it is good for our health. Arguing passionately for the need to understand this multifaceted phenomenon, Breaking the Spell offers a truly original – and comprehensive – explanation for faith.

Lodgey ,

He does go on.

I have tried reading this book a number of times. I find it really hard going as he does tend to wibble on and on and on about nothing. I have read the other books by the “four horsemen” (Dawkins, Harris and Hitchins) and really enjoyed them. I have read The God Delusion a number of times. However, this one I struggle with. Perhaps it’s because he’s a philosopher.
