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.
