Michael Posner On The Meaning of Life

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANicolae Tanase: Prof. Posner, what is the meaning of life?

Michael Posner: I do not believe that life in general has a meaning. I believe that the meaning of each individual life is provided by the person themselves. In the case of my life, it is given what meaning it has by being devoted to acquiring and disseminating an understanding of the mind.
