Read in February, 2008

He is a philosopher w/ complete agreement with neurobiology and insists that it not be compromised. Describes various arenas of 21st century life in which we act/live and seek significance. I liked his use of 'fluorishing' rather than 'happiness' for the Greek eudaimonia. Final chapter was more personal -- celtic/catholic/philospher. He inclines toward bland christianity or buddhism as providing possible meaning in this material world. Not a strong book, kinda meandering. Possibly that is appropriate
