The meaning of life


Article reads: Understanding requires engagement with and experience of human life itself, particularly in relationship with the other. It means more than acquiring knowledge or information. It means going beyond a dispassionate kind of scientism to actually be involved in life and seeking to know what it means. To understand what something means involves experiencing it fully and placing it within a communal context of meaning based in language, which seeks to discern the nature of the thing experienced and form a response towards it.
