The Meaning of Life


The meaning of life is that it is to be lived - Bruce Lee

During challenging times, this book is a practical guide to one of the greatest questions we will ever face.

To wonder too openly or intensely about the meaning of life can seem a peculiar, ill-fated and faintly ridiculous pastime. It can seem like a topic on which ordinary mortals cannot make much progress. In truth, it is for all of us to wonder about, define and work towards a more meaningful existence.

This book considers a range of options for where the meaning of life is to be found, including love, family, friendship, work, self-knowledge and nature. We learn why certain things feel meaningful while others don't, and consider how we might introduce more meaning into our activities. What follows is a hugely thought-provoking as well as a practical guide to one of the greatest questions we will ever face.
