If consciousness is the hard problem in mind science -- explaining how the amazing private world of consciousness emerges from neuronal activity -- then the really hard problem, writes Owen Flanagan in this provocative book, is explaining how meaning is possible in the material world. How can we make sense of the magic and mystery of life naturalistically, without an appeal to the supernatural? How do we say truthful and enchanting things about being human if we accept the fact that we are finite material beings living in a material world, or, in Flanagans description, short-lived pieces of organized cells and tissue? Flanagans answer is both naturalistic and enchanting. We all wish to live in a meaningful way, to live a life that really matters, to flourish, to achieve eudaimonia -- to be a happy spirit. Flanagan calls his empirical-normative inquiry into the nature, causes, and conditions of human flourishing eudaimonics. Eudaimonics, systematic philosophical investigation that is continuous with science, is the naturalists response to those who say that science has robbed the world of the meaning that fantastical, wishful stories once provided.
