Product Details


"The wonderful thing about this book is that it shows how fruitful open-hearted dialogue can be. Although these two men have pursued their humane concerns and their quest for knowledge by different means, I believe they both reveal that it’s not so important whether life has meaning, but whether we give meaning to the life we live." — His Holiness The Dalai Lama

"The Monk and the Philosopher is an intellectual banquet — an enlightening and lively encounter that explores man-kind’s most profound questions." — Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
