Editorial Reviews

Review


"Not only does this book deliver on the topic, but readers also gain an insightful perspective on human nature. The editors allos readers to make their own interpretation, which adds to the excellence of the book. The Meaning of Life: A Reader should be considered a valuable addition to the scholarship of this topic."--Mindy Young, Dialogue


"The book includes a broad selection of some of the best philosophical writings on the question of the meaning of life; there is no other volume like this one."--Timothy Shanahan, Loyola Marymount University


"Klemke and Cahn have done a masterful job amassing historical and contemporary writings that students should grapple with as they question the meaning of life."--Mary Domski, University of New Mexico


"The third edition of this reader provides a strong foundation for helping students to think critically and systematically about the nature of reality and the meaning of life."--Dawn Jakubowski, University of Central Arkansas

Well I do not really enjoy reading, or reading philosophy for that matter. However, the book was in great shape, came relatively quickly, and was a great price. That is why I am rating so highly. (And the book is not that bad.)

Shipped really quickly, book is in perfect condition. I had to get it for my philosophy class called "The Meaning of Life". It's a pretty good book with lots of different views and concepts. So far I really enjoy it. It consists of essays that are a few pages long each, all with their own little spiel about the meaning of life. If your class requires this, it's going to be an interesting class. If you just study philosophy as a hobby, this is a great book with a lot of reputable sources and new ideas!
