Living with the Devil is bestselling author and former monk Stephen Batchelor's seminal work on humanity's greatest struggle - to become good. Batchelor traces the trajectory - from the words of the Buddha and Christ, through the writings of Shantideva, Milton, and Pascal, to the poetry of Baudelaire, the fiction of Kafka, and the findings of modern physics and evolutionary biology - to examine who we really are, and to rest in the uncertainty that we may never know. Living with the Devil tells a poetic and provocative tale about living with life's contradictions that will challenge you to live your life as an existence imbued with purpose, freedom, and compassion - rather than habitual self-interest and fear.
