      This course will tackle what is probably the most important question of all: Why do we bother? What gets us out of bed in the morning? What do you say to someone contemplating suicide?

      Starting with the question, “What does ‘meaning’ mean?” we will consider the concept in relation to theism and atheism, work and play, pleasure, gender, family, depression, creativity, politics, community and relate these issues to our own lives. This course is for anyone looking to get in touch with the meaning of his or her own life—those struggling to “find themselves” early in life, those going through midlife crisis or contemplating a second career, and those confronting issues of retirement, aging and dying.

      Brent Harold, a former English professor, is a longtime op- ed columnist for the Cape Cod Times, and author of several books. He blogs at brentharoldjournal.com. (Note: Brent is not a psychotherapist.)
