Dear philosophical friends,
I am tremendously pleased and excited to announce that a book I have been working on for many years is now published and available! (Don't worry, this is the only commercial email I'll send about it.) The book's title is How To Be An Excellent Human: Mysticism, Evolutionary Psychology and the Good Life. It is my take on a question that goes back to the ancient Greeks: how can we live the most fulfilling life? To answer it I consider what goodness is all about, the ultimate metaphysical nature of the universe and our place in it, what our unique gifts and abilities are in light of evolutionary psychology, and many other topics. I have tried to write it all down in a way that is accessible to an interested person who is not trained in philosophy but also rigorous enough that professional philosophers will find merit in it, or at least something worth arguing with.
You can find out more and place an order for it on my website, http://www.bmeacham.com/. I hope you'll want to read it and tell your friends about it, but if not at least join me in celebrating a huge accomplishment.
