Summary

The Search for Meaning in Life: Contemporary Religious, Philosophical, Transhumanist, and Scientific Perspectives is the first book to summarize the writings on the subject of life’s meaning of most of the important contemporary theologians, philosophers, and scientists who have written on the question. In addition the book deals with the relevance of death for the question as well the huge importance that the potential scientific elimination of death will have for humanity’s concern regarding meaning. Finally the book considers the question in the context of cosmic evolution and deep time, offering in the end an answer to the question of whether life is or is not ultimately meaningful.
