Making Sense

by Sam Harris

On his podcast, Making Sense, neuroscientist, philosopher, and bestselling author Sam Harris has been delving into some of the most pressing questions about the human mind, society, and current events. With over one million downloads per episode, these discussions have clearly struck a chord, frequently walking a tightrope where either host or guest—and sometimes both—lose their footing, but always in search of a better understanding of the world we live in. For Harris, honest discourse, no matter how tough or contentious, is the only way to develop morally and intellectually.

This book collects a dozen of the best Making Sense conversations, including interviews with Daniel Kahneman, Timothy Snyder, Nick Bostrom, and Glenn Loury, on topics ranging from the nature of consciousness and free will to politics and extremism, to living ethically. They illuminate what it means to "make sense" in the current world.
