God and the Meanings of Life
God and the Meanings of Life (Bloomsbury, 2016)
T. J. Mawson
Some philosophers have thought that life could only be meaningful if there is no God. Some philosophers, by contrast, have thought that life could only be meaningful if there is a God. This book explores the truth in both these schools of thought. According to Mawson, God, were he to exist, would help make life meaningful in some of these senses and hinder in some others. He argues that whilst there could be meaning in a Godless universe, there could be more and deeper sorts of meaning in a Godly universe.
