內容簡介


紐約時報暢銷書《我在底層的生活:當專欄作家化身為女服務生》作者最大膽誠實的回憶錄,將改變你看世界的方式。

芭芭拉.艾倫瑞克(Barbara Ehrenreich)是我們這個時代最重要的思想家。她學的是科學,從事寫作、報導、社會運動,並且大力倡導社會正義。已屆中年的她有一天發現自己徬徨少年時的日記,當中記錄了一件非常古怪、一般人稱為「神秘經驗」的事件。她從來沒跟人說過這件事,而她一向是堅定的無神論者,推崇理性。重新想起這件事,讓她心裡十分疑惑,於是有了這本《Living with a Wild God》,書中她重新探索孩提時的疑問:宇宙萬物的「真理」是什麼?人為何存在?這是一本極為個人卻又能引起大家共鳴的書,深刻思考了關於科學、宗教以及人類的種種問題,展現她一貫的探索精神和想像力。

Barbara Ehrenreich is an acclaimed social critic on both sides of the Atlantic, renowned for her trenchant, witty polemics, her pieces of journalism, and her trademark intelligence. She writes with unparalleled precision, insight and a rationalist's unwavering gaze. But in middle age, she rediscovered the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence, which records an event so strange that she had never, in all the intervening years, written or spoken about it. It was the kind of event that people call a 'mystical experience' - and to a steadfast atheist and rationalist, was nothing less than shattering. In Living with a Wild God, Ehrenreich vividly explores her life-long quest to find 'the truth' about the universe and everything else, in an attempt to reconcile this cataclysmic, defining moment with her secular understanding of the world. The result is a profound reflection on science, religion and the human condition, and a personal insight into the inner life of one of our finest thinkers. It is a book that challenges us all to reassess our perceptions of the world and what it means to be alive.
