The meaning of life is there! And everyone puts their own special meaning into their life, which, by the way, changes over the years.
Irrationalism, led by Arthur Schopenhauer, defines life as a struggle with death. According to the teachings of this direction, people do not live according to their own desire, but according to the dictates of the world's will. And in the process of living, they create their own philosophical directions to make it easier to bear the sufferings of life.
Existentialism assumes that life is absurd. And a person should fill it with his own meaning, which is beneficial only to him, and not to humanity as a whole.
Nihilists believed that there was no meaning to life at all. Nietzsche saw the connection between nihilism and Christianity in the concentration of meaning on the existence of the soul after death.
And positivism and Wittgenstein are characterized by giving meaning to everything that surrounds a person, except for life itself.
The meaning of life(well, so it is programmed by nature) of all living beings is the continuation of the genus.
And there's someone who values what more for themselves(I'm now talking about Homo how to shave Sapiens);)
The problem of the meaning of life is directly related to the ultimate goal of human existence and its purpose in the world as a whole.
Therefore, the question was raised by many philosophical and theological schools, scientific circles and various communities of thinkers.
Nevertheless, the issue remains relevant and open at the present time. To answer this question, we need to turn to the history of philosophy.
Often the question of the meaning of life was associated with the concept of good (in the theory of such philosophers as Descartes and Spinoza, for example). But of course, the ancient philosophers (Plato, Aristotle, Diogenes) were the first to speak about the question of the good and the meaning of life. For them, a person always aspired to ” happiness “(virtue).
The medieval definition of the meaning of life was the absolute embodiment of class values and maximum compliance with the way of life of our ancestors.
In German philosophy, the meaning of life was identified with the ” World Will “(Schopenhauer), often rejecting any “meaning”.
Further, with the arrival of the positivist paradigm of thought in the 20th century.theories arise about the inseparability of the world and language, and, accordingly, the meaning that this relationship generates
Hi! No one can answer this question better than wikipedia: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smysl_life
People have completely different views on the meaning of life, although in some cases, for example, medieval Europeans and Indians, had a similar view of the meaning of life-the veneration of ancestors. There is even a scientific view-a decrease in entropy. Very interesting.
