Description
Kai Nielson  Very famous Native philosopher  Lingusitic philosophy  “To say philosophy is linguistic philosophy is limiting to philosophy in itself”  When someone asks what is the meaning of life, they are saying or asking how they should live their life  “When we humans beings ask this exceedingly vague question we are not just asking for an explanation of the facts of existence; we are asking for a justification of these facts.” A justification of our existence.  You cannot go from factual statements to value statements  Facts vs. Value 250 people in a room is a fact, 250 people in a room is good, is a value  God or no God the meaning of our life is still up to us.  No amount of facts is going to answer the meaning
