Young Philosophers

Man's Search for Meaning

“Life has never been normal,” wrote C. S. Lewis in an address to students at the outset of World War II. If we are waiting for a better time to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty, we may never get started. In the Young Philosophers series, Gutenberg College opens its (virtual) doors to high-school-age participants for thoughtful discussion of important ideas.

All but the most hard-core atheists believe, at some level, that life has meaning. But what is it? We will explore the meaning of meaning, why it is so central to our experience, and various approaches toward an answer.

Leading this session of Young Philosophers will be Dr. Chris Swanson. Chris is the president of Gutenberg College where he has been a tutor since the college opened its doors in 1994. He has a B.S. in physics and math and both an M.S. and Ph.D. in physics. He has also done post-doctoral research at the University of Oregon and taught at Westmont College in California.
