After a great discussion last month on whether, when, and how we should have the right to die, the group decided to discuss a more positive topic for September: What gives us meaning in life?
The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy defines meaningfulness generally as “a variable and gradient final good in a person's life that is conceptually distinct from happiness, rightness, and worthwhileness.” Come and discuss what you think will provide you that “final good”.
Or, choose one of the following philosophies:
“People aren’t wearing enough hats.” Monty Python, The Meaning of Life.
“42.” Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything.
“I wanna live. I don’t wanna die. That’s the whole meaning of life: Not dying! I figured that sh*t out by myself in the third grade”. George Carlin
