Sample Book Insights:

#1 A meaningful life is not just valued, but also valuable. It is distinct from a happy life or a morally good one. A meaningful life is worthwhile, and it is felt by the person living it.

#2 A life has a trajectory, and it can be narratively conceived. A life is not an unrelated series of actions or projects or states of being. A life has, we might say, a thickness. It is lived in a temporal thickness.

#3 We must ask ourselves what makes our lives meaningful, and why we should care about them. The answer is that a meaningful life is one that is filled with objects of objective attractiveness. These are rarely the themes of a shopping or investing life.

#4 The activity of philosophy begins with Socrates, who did not write. Plato and others wrote down stories about him, and the center of a vivid philosophical culture is often held by figures who do not write but who exist only through the stories that are told about them.
