045: Ep41 – BC8 – The Meaning of Life? Answered.

Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast

Dr. Larry A. HickmanThis forty-first episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast is a special “breadcrumb” episode with Dr. Larry A. Hickman, who was our featured guest in Episode 40. In that episode, Larry raised a question for listeners for which he said he has an answer: “What’s the meaning of life?”

A guru on a mountaintop, whose answer is 'Google it.'

It’s the age-old question, the stereotypical philosophical question, yet Larry believes that there can be serious, meaningful answers to it. And, he said that he has one! We want to know our listeners thoughts, of course. At the same time, we couldn’t resist and had to hear Larry’s answer to the question of the meaning of life. Enjoy this short breadcrumb episode that takes a stab at one of the great questions for all of our lives.

  2. A little, simple biographical information about John Dewey.
  3. A series of cartoons that illustrate the fact that “the meaning of life” is a pretty funny, cliché question, in many people’s eyes. Dr. Hickman pushes back on that outlook, in this fun, thoughtful breadcrumb.
