Colloquium: the Meaning of Life

Colloquium: the Meaning of Life

Everyone is invited to join us on selected Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. in Crabbe Library Room 201 for a hour of informal, moderated conversation over print, video or audio material on various topics selected by EKU faculty. Refreshments will be provided by EKU Student Government Association.

This Friday, Dr. Minh Nguyen will lead discussion of The Meaning of Life:

This survey critically discusses approaches to meaning in life that are prominent in contemporary English-speaking philosophical literature… [T]he central aim is to acquaint the reader with recent analytic work on life’s meaning and to pose questions about it that are currently worthy of consideration. [...] It concludes by examining nihilist views that the conditions necessary for meaning in life do not obtain.
