Thu, Mar 30
As we continue our reading of Man's Search for Meaning we will continue to consider the following questions:
- Why should we care about what we do?
- Does our meaning have to come from work?
- As well as reflecting on how periods of extreme uncertainty and where there rules of life seem to completely change, how does that change us? Is technology capable of bringing about such a change?
Today's lecture slides can be found here.
