Product description

Review

"May's book is a thoughtful, widely accessible, and comprehensive account of meaning in life. . . . As someone well acquainted with work on life's meaning composed by professional philosophers, I have profited from reading May's book, especially his discussion of what can confer (substantial) meaning on a person's life. I especially recommend his work in virtue of it being a 'good read', avoiding technicalities and reflecting on everyday examples with insight. It would be ideal to assign for an upper-level undergraduate course or to share as a gift with reflective friends and family outside the academy."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
