Making Meaning

Seeking the Most Meaningful Life

by Bob Lichtenbert

About The Book

Making Meaning concerns how to live your life to make maximum impact. It does this by being the first book ever to fully develop meaning as the greatest idea since everything has it in some way. We have a crying need for this today because most of us have little to believe in.

This book takes a common-sense approach to answer the life-or-death question about the meaning of your life. The author describes his own, seeking and making meaning to render this abstract idea more concrete. Making Meaning explores eight main sources of meaning: (1) loving relationships, (2) community, (3) dialogue, (4) fulfilling work, (5) appreciating art, (6) search for God, (7) needed possessions, and (8) intangibles or nonphysical realities and values such as goodness, beauty, free will, and justice.

Making Meaning tries to satisfy the need to understand the objectivity of meaning. It gives us external standards to judge and live by. Toward the end, this book tackles its major negative challenges: meaninglessness, nihilism, and extreme relativism.

Finally, this book defines the meaning of life by drawing from thinkers like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.
