    What is the meaning of life?It's a question every thoughtful person has pondered at one time or another. Indeed, it may be the biggest question of all-at once profound and universal, but also deeply personal.We want to understand the world in which we live, but we also want to understand how to make our own lives as meaningful as possible; to know not only why we're living, but that we're doing it with intention, purpose, and ethical commitment.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I do, and I have. For the person who is looking for a thoughtful and well presented survey of philosophical traditions, this book is ideal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The theme was presented consistently across diverse philosophical traditions across the centuries.


    What about Professor Jay L. Garfield’s performance did you like?

    Professor Garfield's passion for the topic is obvious in his presentation of the different traditions. He is even handed in his assessment and his personal biases were not obvious. I really liked his selection of readings from the texts and his appreciation for the artistic beauty of the writing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way - it took weeks. Even though I was very interested in the subject matter, I listened one lecture at a time and would at times repeat lectures if I felt I hadn't absorbed the material.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a great fit for me. I found it enlightening and thought provoking, and the presentation by Prof. Garfield was well done.
