The Monist 31 (1):136-141 (2010)
|Abstract||I seek to step back from the discussion of what it is that confers meaning and concentrate rather on the issue of our reasons to search for meaning. I seek to show that we always have reason to search for meaning, and that this is the case even if we are in a crisis that has rendered us ignorant of what it is that could make the rest of our life worthwhile. Consider: even if presented with an argument that has mean- inglessness as its conclusion, one always has reason to investigate either the premises or the validity of the argument.|
