"Why Am I Here? A Brief World History of the Search for Meaning and Purpose" just published!


I am delighted to announce that my new book "Waarom ben ik hier?" ("Why Am I Here?") was published by Prometheus. It contains a world history of the search for meaning and purpose from prehistory to the present. I also derive a number of patterns and underlying principles from the many ways people assign meaning to their existence. I argue that meaning-making is a form of systematic knowledge, which is however different from scientific knowledge.

While the book is still under translation, here is an interview about the book in English.

And here is a sample from the book in English.
