The nature and purpose of existence

In unit 1, you had an opportunity to consider what was most important in your life. You were asked to consider the following questions as you wrote:

What is the nature and purpose of existence?
What do you believe to be most important? What do you most value?
What beliefs and values motivate you and shape your choices?
What beliefs shape your interactions with others and with yourself?
Since then, we have explored classical philosophy and historical philosophical movements, major world religious movements, and the life philosophies of Morrie Schwartz and how those philosophies shaped his life, interactions, and death. Ask yourself if there is context for your life philosophy. Does it incorporate other philosophies explored (either secular or religious)? You have also considered your own life in the context of your own life philosophy, and what a meaningful life looks like to you.
