The question of whether life is meaningful is childish in that it comes from the outside of life.

Kazuhisa Todayama



People should ask the question about the meaning of life while struggling in everyday life. Having trouble answering about whether life has meaning, people have always made efforts to make the lives of themselves and those around them worth living. The scientific philosopher says that on the contrary, if the statement that any life deserves to live equally becomes just a watchword, it can undermine these efforts.
