There’s a leit motif that’s been running through these pages, and it’s Truth.
Is truth an absolute? And meaning? Does meaning depend upon the truth of that which is intended or presented? We’ve flirted with these concepts again and again recently. Now here’s another party weighing in, a man whose evidence was forged in the crucible of concentration camps:
A doctor cannot give meanings to his patients. Nor can a professor give meanings to his students. What they may give, however, is an example, the existential example of personal commitment to the search for truth. As a matter of fact, the answer to the question What is the meaning of life can only be given out of one’s whole being — one’s life is itself the answer to the question of its meaning.
