Every thoughtful person eventually asks if there is a meaning to life, if there is some direction the universe and their lives are going, if life has some higher purpose. In order to live, to live well, we feel that we must understand first understand what life itself is and means. In Gerhard Stübben’s newest book, Meaning Without Meaning, he attempts to answer that question with a reflection on Ecclesiastes. Gerhard argues that Ecclesiastes is itself an attempt to answer that question – or, rather, an attempt to rule the question out of court. To answer the question by silencing it forever. “Everything is meaningless,” and so we no longer need to worry about living meaningful lives. We can, instead, simply live. Ecclesiastes frees us, Gerhard contends, to live life alive, awake, and free of the philosophical chains that had bound us. “Everything is meaningless, and that’s OK.”
