Breaking the Spell

Religion as Natural Phenomenon

By Daniel Dennett

Professor Daniel Dennett is a FFRF Honorary Director.

Religion has elicited the best and worst in the human character, from selflessness to fanaticism. But until now few boos have tried to investigate it in a scientific manner. Breaking the Spell is the daring and -inevitably- controversial exception. Ranging through biology, history, and psychology, Daniel Dennett asks: Is religion a product of blind evolutionary instinct or rational choice? Is it truly the best way to live a moral life? Is religion good for you? Not an antireligious screed bud an unblinking look beneath the veil of orthodoxy, the result is essential reading for believers and skeptics alike.
