About this book
A spirited and stimulating book by the university professor Terry Eagleton, which dares to ask and answer the ultimate question. Eagleton shows how centuries of thinkers and writers - including Marx, Schopenhauer, Shakespeare, Satre and Beckett - have attempted to make sense of life, and analyses their theories. As well as being extremely educational and seriously thought provoking, this exciting book is delivered in a comic, light-hearted style.
We have all wondered about the meaning of life. But is there an answer? And do we even really know what we're asking? This book takes a quirky look at these questions: at the answers explored in philosophy and literature; at the crisis of meaning in modern times; and suggests solution to how we might rediscover meaning in our lives.
