The Nihilist's Way
P1 : If there is a meaning of life then there must be either a transcendent (relation to God) meaning of
life or an immanent (relation to one another) meaning
of life
P2 : There is no transcendent meaning of life
P3 : There is no immanent meaning of life
C : Therefore, there is no meaning of life
Nihilism | the view that there is no meaning of life
Affirmationism | the view that there is a meaning of life
Transcendentalism | the view that there is a meaning of life because there is a transcendent meaning of life
Immanentism | the view that there is a meaning of life because there is an immanent meaning of life
“Something that makes the meaning of life meaningful is believing in something that makes life beautiful.”
Zorren Kierkgaard not about relationship to god but about something else - existentialists
Carl Lard, Gabriel Marcel - believed in god
IS THERE A MEANING OF LIFE?
Yes - Affirmationist
No - Nihilist
IS THERE A TRANSCENDENTAL MEANING OF LIFE?
Yes Transcendentalist No - Existentialist
In terms of Philosophy, the most popular view is Immanentism. Not in terms of the population of the universe.
Schopenhauer doesn’t believe in God mainly for the problem of evil. Reject’s a transcendent meaning of life.
The Problem of Evil: The problem, for those who believe in an all-good, all-powerful, all-knowing being,
of reconciling the supposed existence of such a being with the prevalent of evil in the world.
Meh, sorry Lesbianiz (Lebniz), attempting to solve the problem of evil won’t work.
