Welcome

This site is to supplement the forthcoming book:

Dispirited: How Contemporary Spirituality Makes Us Stupid, Selfish and Unhappy.

The book itself will be out on June 29th, published by Zero Books – and will appear on their forthcoming section fairly soon…

  1. Hi David.

    Congratulations on your book. I don’t know the details of your argument, of course, but the title itself makes me giddy. I have been around self-anointed “spiritual” people as, first, a student and scholar (of Indian Buddhism), and then for a living (I work at a Buddhist institute). For now, I’ll just say that you nailed it with your title/sub-title. I see those qualities in the people around me daily. They, of course, couch them in different–grandiose, crypto-religious–terms. (Using a set, prescribed system of postulation to do your thinking, for instance, is evidence of one’s beautifully “spiritual,” non-egotistical nature, I hear. No, I reply; it’s a form of stupidity–it’s locking into the tracks of borrowed thought, etc.)

    I really look forward to reading more.

    Glenn

  2. Thanks Glenn – I will update you once the book is on pre-order etc…
