The Religion of the Future (Book, 2014)

The Religion of the Future was published in April of 2014 by Harvard University Press. I place here a complete draft of the book. Beginning with a criticism of major orientations in the spiritual history of humanity, it argues for a radical revision of the moral, political, and metaphysical ideas that have informed the revolutionary orthodoxy of the West, with its two-fold roots in the Semitic religions of salvation and in the modern secular projects of democracy and romanticism. It should be read alongside The Self Awakened (2007) and my work in natural philosophy, The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time (with Lee Smolin).
