"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Review

Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how deeply we are connected to our fellow citizens. This view changes everything. Every American who longs to decrease suffering and increase kindness will want to read this book. -Congressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation

Another ethical imperative comes from the venerable Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh in Good Citizens: Creating Enlightened Society. The Vietnamese monk nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. at the height of the Vietnam War is now 85, and continues his life’s effort to promote spiritually based social engagement; his books have been reliable sellers that cross religious boundaries.Publishers Weekly Top 10 Religion Books , March 5 2012


"We need a new ethics, a new morality for the whole of humanity . . . We have to find a kind of global ethic that everybody can accept and consider the basis for happiness, for mutual respect, and for what is deeply ethical. A new global order calls for a new global ethic." — from the book

About the Author
