Doing meaning better

warrior woman taking a stance

This is the main division of the book Meaningness. After a couple of introductory pages, each of its chapters discusses one dimension of meaningness, and the stances we take to that dimension.

It discusses both confused stances—dysfunctional, incorrect ways of relating to meaning—and the functional, accurate complete stances. For each confused stance, it suggests antidotes, and ways to shift to the complete stance for its dimension.


This page introduces a section containing the following:

The previous page is Stances: responses to meaningness. (That page introduces its own subsection.)

General explanation: Meaningness is a hypertext book (in progress), plus a “metablog” that comments on it. The book begins with an appetizer. Alternatively, you might like to look at its table of contents, or some other starting points. Classification of pages by topics supplements the book and metablog structures. Terms with dotted underlining (example: meaningness) show a definition if you click on them. Pages marked with ⚒ are still under construction. Copyright ©2010–2020 David Chapman.
