it was amazing
bookshelves: 2016, 5-stars, atheism, living-and-dying, philosophy, reviews, social-commentary

Who would have thought you could clear this up in 100 pages? And some of the pages are illustrations. Pithy, clear, funny, wide-ranging--from Aristotle to the Buena Vista Social Club. What is the meaning of "life?" What is the meaning of "meaning?" What is the meaning of "what?" A five-star life changer b/c there's a lifetime of thought in the nuances and ramifications of what Eagleton has to say. And a number of beautiful and profound paragraphs. And he's very nearly persuaded me to read Wittgenstein. The answer, btw, is perfect and will make you smile.
