On Some of Life's Ideals: On a Certain Blindness in Human Beings; What Makes a Life Significant
This book is divided into two sections: On a certain blindness in human beings and What makes a life significant. The author tries to demonstrate how soaked and shot-through life is with values and meanings which we fail to realize because of our external and insensible point of view. The meanings are there for the others, but they are not there for us. There lies more than a mere interest of curious speculation in understanding this. It has the most tremendous practical importance. It is the basis of all our tolerance, social, religious, and political.
