“Life has never been normal,” wrote C. S. Lewis in an address to students at the outset of World War II. If we are waiting for a better time to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty, we may never get started. In the Young Philosophers series, Gutenberg College opens its (virtual) doors to high-school-age participants for thoughtful online discussion of important ideas.

All but the most hard-core atheists believe, at some level, that life has meaning. But what is it? In this session of Young Philosophers, we will explore the meaning of meaning, why it is so central to our experience, and various approaches toward an answer.

Attendee Requirements: High-school age
