This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Susan Wolf, the Edna J. Koury Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This fascinating conversation explores what it is to live an ethical, meaningful life in keeping with her book, Meaning in Life and Why It Matters, the role that love, fulfillment, self-interest and happiness play in giving meaning to one’s life, and how meaningful activities occur when "subjective attraction meets objective attractiveness".

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Takin’ It To The Streets, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Philosophical Engagement - The appeal of thinking deeply

II. Investigating Motivation - Beyond pleasure and duty

III. Exploring Fulfillment - A key subjective metric

IV. Subjective Meets Objective - Interpreting a “waste of time”

V. Objectivity Emerges - The meaning of mistakes

VI. Why Meaning Matters, Part I - A personal perspective

VII. Enter Sisyphus - The meaning of rolling stones

VIII. Frames of Reference - Cosmic questions and endoxic icons

IX. Why Meaning Matters, Part II - Improving theoretical understanding

X. Towards a Meaningful World - Making it real

XI. Beyond Happiness - Pursuing what you love
