THE TRANSCENDENT BRAIN Spirituality in the Age of Science

by | Read by Christopher Grove

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Christopher Grove's performance is subtly captivating. He conveys lofty, often complex scientific questions with an earnest, gentle touch. Lightman's audiobook offers fascinating ideas about the nature of human existence. The range covered is staggering. Listeners will move from considering what constitutes the true level of existence when a molecule can no longer be split to pondering the concept of expanding regenerating solar systems--in other words, an actual multiverse. Yet as the title suggests, all this relates to the human brain and what it means to be aware, to remember, and to die--which inspires questions about the material and the spiritual. Grove's delivery embodies the scientific focus of Lightman's work. He's direct and clear. Most importantly, he invites the listener's curiosity.
