An entertaining yet thoughtful philosophical quest for meaning
The most costly of the resources of the human race is not gold; nor is it coal nor uranium – it is meaning. Nietzsche with all his cares said that "He who has a why to live can bear almost any how."
The resource "meaning", however, seems to be becoming exhausted in our day and age. The symptoms of a progressive loss of meaning are not only becoming apparent in psychological practices. The sources of meaning of past generations such as religion, affluence or personal fulfilment have been worn away. How can we make these, our most important resources accessible again?
Christoph Quarch has invited us to take a fresh look at meaning. To do this, we first have to clear our minds of all the false promises of happiness we have been believing for too long. After that, Socrates, Plato & co. will open a new, free access to the experience of meaning. The fact that philosophy can work like medicine on our stressed-out minds is what Christoph Quarch has demonstrated here in his uniquely wise and entertaining way.
