Immigration, Identity Politics, and the Meaning of Life

A public lecture by Professor Michael Hauskeller from the Department of Philosophy. We all want to live a meaningful life. Sometimes we feel we do, sometimes we feel we don't. If we don't, we search for it, moving towards a new way of life, a different job, or a different country, or perhaps towards a new faith, a new ideology, or a new leader. Whole worlds are built and destroyed in search for meaning. This talk examines the centrality of meaning in our lives, how it informs the course of our actions, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.
