A Saturday Evening Talk in Search of a Point

with Mr. Randolph Kraus

Would you like to find the meaning of life? Would you like to experience greater meaning in your activities or relationships? But, in our search for answers we must first ask: What do we mean by meaning? Why do some things, some events, have meaning and some appear to be meaningless? By what means are things held together?

Join us to explore the meaning of means in fields ranging from arithmetic, geometry, music, and language to the practical world of relationships and beyond to the realm of existence itself. This talk will survey the use of “the mean” or “meaning” in these various areas, delving into the nature of meaning and seeking to discover what contributes to its being more or less in our immediate experience.
