What is the meaning of life? This is perhaps the most important philosophical question we can ask. But what is the answer? Indeed, what is the question really asking? In this module, we seek the answers. Along the way will consider a series of fascinating questions which promise to enlighten our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. What makes life worth living? Does evolution render life meaningless? Is there no reason to fear death? Could life in an artificial reality be more meaningful in the real world? Live fast and die young, or live slower and die older? This module investigates diverse perspectives on the meaning of life from different Cultures, Religions, and Philosophies, as well as from fields such as Health Care, Psychology, Biology and Economics.
