Before the modern era, the meaning of life and a persons place in society were clearly defined. The existential questions of life who am I? where did I come from? what happens when I die? what is a good life? were answered by the culture and rarely questioned. So, living a purposeful, relevant life was a natural process.
In the last few hundred years, with the rise of science and the erosion of a traditional worldview, its become increasingly challenging for some moderns to live a life that answers lifes existential questions with any clarity and certainty. In a world that is rapidly changing and so difficult to make sense of, how do we live a life that has meaning and purpose, a life that is rich and satisfying? The search for meaning doesnt have to be an esoteric pursuit traveling to a distant monastery or paging through dusty volumes to discover lifes secrets.
Would you like to find untapped sources of meaning all around us right here, right now? To explore how we can create a life that matters, this class will synthesize an array of sources from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and neuroscience to figures in literature and history. Drawing on these resources, well discover how cultivating connections to others, identifying and working toward a purpose, telling stories about our place in the world, and seeking out mystery that can immeasurably deepen our lives. This class will introduce you to resources, exercises, and personal reflection that will invite, and challenge, you to define and to practice living a life that matters.
The search for meaning doesnt have to be an esoteric pursuit, it doesnt need a pilgrimage to a monastery or costly guru. There are untapped sources of meaning all around us, right here, right now.
