What is the meaning of life? This is one of the most persistent and significant questions ever asked. People routinely search for purposeful relationships and work, but find it difficult to answer what is personally meaningful. The second edition of The Human Quest for Meaning, with 21 new and revised chapters, clarifies the different types and components of meaning. It brings together trends in the "human search for meaning," and examines the process of purpose-seeking through multiple perspectives, such as positive psychology, self-determination, and integrative. The contributors also address threats to meaning and meaning-centered interventions, making this the most comprehensive text available for meaning-oriented research and applications.
