Overview

Existential Aspirations affirms that active, continuous learning is what makes life worthwhile. Thoughtful living can create meaning anywhere you look. In this collection of provocative essays, author Charles Hayes gives close examination to subjects that we often take for granted. He explores the value of thinking for yourself, taking responsibility as a citizen in a democracy, and overcoming bias to pursue the better argument. Topics range from memories, movies, gullibility, and self-help culture to honor, war, capitalism, and justice; from rethinking the pursuit of happiness to coming to terms with our own mortality. Known for his astute wisdom, Hayes includes a treasure of aphorisms as a bonus.
