Summary
"So what is the meaning of life? Terry Eagleton show how centuries of thinkers - from Shakespeare and Schopenhauer to Marx, Sartre, and Beckett - have tackled the question. Eagleton reveals how the question has become particularly problematic in modern times. Instead of addressing it head-on, we take refuge from the feelings of 'meaninglessness' in our lives by filling them with a multitude of different things: from football and sex, to New Age religions and fundamentalism."--BOOK JACKET
