Description About the author Contents
Our ancestors of pre-history lived in an animal harmony with nature, free of the existential suffering we Homo sapiens experience.  But evolutionary changes to our bodies and brains left us with both an increased capacity for creative productivity and the discontent that comes with disconnection from our environment.  It is this duality of our evolution that sets us apart from all other species and inspires our most profound intellectual and spiritual yearning.  
  Science and spiritual practice have long been considered mutually exclusive, and yet they are both methods of investigation, of striving toward understanding of the universe in which we live.  Dismantling Discontent offers a provocative perspective on our existential suffering from the metaphorical viewpoints of Darwin and Buddha, synthesizing their two approaches--science and meditation, both rooted in the natural world--into a powerful union.
  In writing this book, Charlie Fisher, Ph.D., has touched upon a scientific taboo and shattered previous assumptions about the incompatibility of these two very different ways of knowing.  His daring, grounded in years of solid research and sincere practice, has cleared the path to an inspired, new "middle way" for us humans to be at greater peace with our selves, each other, and the world in which we live.
