Does life have any meaning for you? It is possible to create meaning? What do you think life is about? Do you think life is worth living? These questions, taken from the text of Rethinking our world, challenges the reader to look critically and creatively at many of society's traditional beliefs. It encourages the reader to look at her or his world differently by asking questions about change, identity and direction. The authors outline the basic tenets of each philosophy, analyse the type of thinking it encourages and discuss its history and the major figures who influenced it. Rethinking our world will be invaluable to undergraduate students as well as to a more general readership seeking an understanding of the major philosophies.
