Fascinating read. Goes back to the ancients to help modern man rediscover the wonder in life. Discusses Homer,the Greeks, Jesus, Dante, Kant, Melville, David Foster Wallace and several others on how find mind meaning in our secular world. The choice of philosophers and examples is a bit eclectic but it makes perfect sense in the end.
