Pleasure, Meaning and the Death of God

Miroslav Volf explores two nihilisms of our time - our search for meaning, and our pursuit of pleasure.

Miroslav Volf explores two nihilisms of our time - our search for meaning, and our pursuit of pleasure.

Drawing on Nietzsche, Professor Volf explores two pervasive and mutually reinforcing nihilisms of our time – our misplaced search for meaning, and our wrongheaded pursuit of pleasure – and counters common critiques of religion by arguing that faith in God intensifies and deepens enjoyment of the world, uniting both meaning and pleasure. Professor Volf ties this in with his speech at the UN at the time of 9/11, and his participation in the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Councils.
