How do we make meaning of our lives today, when it feels as though everyone and everything we care about is susceptible to loss? In This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom, Martin Hägglund, Professor of Comparative Literature at Yale, argues that it is exactly this sense of fragility and the possibility of loss that make our lives meaningful. As long as we have attachments to lose, we are susceptible to suffering, but to be liberated from that risk would also mean losing all sense of genuine care or meaning in our lives.

Join us for a Zoom conversation between Faith Initiative Director, Dr. Matthew Croasmun and Prof. Hägglund, exploring the tenants of his book. During a time in which we are constantly reminded of the fragility of life, and in which our sense of loss is so acute, this will serve as an important reminder that we can always find meaning in our lives.

Our Books on Faith & Meaning series consists of monthly presentations introducing selections from the Faith & Meaning section of the Grace Farms Library. Spanning multiple religious and philosophical traditions, both ancient and contemporary, these texts encourage us to think critically about the meaning in our lives.
