E23 GUEST: Sam Rickless on Philosophy and the Meaning of Life
The meaning of life, meaningful lives - what does it all mean?
Sam Rickless is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, San Diego, where he’s created a brand new course entitled ‘The Meaning of Life’. In many ways, Sam's course gets right to the heart of what Searching For It is all about: Sam teaches his students about Schopenhauer, Sartre, Buddhist philosophy, and much more.
In this episode, Sam and I will discuss the lessons he's learned from thinking about the meaning of life, the results of his students' "experiments in living", as well as his thoughts on Camus, Nagel, and Wolf.
