First we analyse this maxim. Then we build on it aided by great philosophers of the past & recent research. We then apply these ideas to issues such as love, friendship, future generations, difficult people, dilemmas, careers, business & weakness of will.
- The Meaning of Life
What do we mean when we talk about the meaning of life? Is your life meaningless if God doesn't exist? Is it up to you what meaning to give to your life or are there more objective standards? What sort of life have philosophers considered meaningful?
