Description

Chapter in On Meaning in Life, edited by Beatrix Himmelmann.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: The question of meaning in life is as relevant and central as ever - in spite of all attempts at declaring it senseless. It does not disappear. But how should we deal with this question today? The collection presents a wide range of approaches, discussing subjectivist and objectivist answers, confronting concepts of meaning with notions of happiness and morality, and considering the idea of human life's meaning both sub specie aeternitatis and in view of the world's finitude and contingency. The volume assembles contributions from leading scholars in the field, including John Cottingham, John Kekes, Iddo Landau, Dag T. Andersson, Robert B. Louden, Christoph Horn, and Bernard Reginster.
