The Meaning of Life

The Meaning of Life


by Terry Eagleton

We have all wondered about the meaning of life. But is there an answer? And do we even really know what we're asking? Terry Eagleton takes a stimulating and quirky look at this most compelling of questions: at the answers explored in philosophy and literature; at the crisis of meaning in modern times; and suggests his own solution to how we might rediscover meaning in our lives. - ;We have all wondered about the meaning of life.

This is popular philosophy by an amateur in the best sense of the word, a man who clearly loves the stuff and writes plain English...[Eagleton] makes his case well and with a light touch. - Simon Jenkins, The Guardian (Review);It is a stimulating and often entertaining, if at times rather breathless, Cook's tour around the chief monuments of western philosophy and literature...The Meaning of Life is unusual and refreshing. - John Gray, The Independent;The book's a little gem. - Suzanne Harrington, Irish Examiner (Cork);A lively starting point for late-night debate. - John Cornwell, Sunday Times;Warm intellectual pleasure...meticulous treatment of the subject...It looks like Eagleton got it right. - Mario Pisani, The Financial Times;His witty eclecticism is perfect for such a lofty subject - Leopold Froehlich, Playboy;It dazzles... - ;The name Terry Eagleton...assures us of stimulation, style, sparkling, sometimes acerbic, wit, and wide-ranging erudition. In other words he is eminently readable...[a] commendably pocket-sized book. - Gordon Parsons, Morning Star
