-Philosophy and the Meaning of Life
Mark T. Brown, Ph.D.
Most people have wondered about the meaning of life at one time or another, but for philosophers, it is a central preoccupation. Does the question even make sense? What would an answer look like? Might there be more than one answer, or none at all? Is it the most important thing in the world, or an idle exercise for people with too much time on their hands?
