John Vervaeke: What Is the Meaning of Life?

What is the meaning of life? John Vervaeke explains the meaning crisis and how to find the meaning of your own life. Professor John Vervaeke offers a look into the real meaning of life and finding your own purpose to fulfill to avoid what he calls “the meaning crisis.”

I found John Vervaeke’s work on YouTube while stumbling across a debate between Jordan Peterson and John Vervaeke where they discussed the meaning of life.

Professor John Vervaeke has been teaching at the University of Toronto since 1994. He currently teaches courses in the Cognitive Science program including Introduction to Cognitive Science, and the Cognitive Science of Consciousness; courses in the Psychology department on thinking and reasoning with an emphasis on insight problem solving cognitive development with an emphasis on the dynamical nature of development, and higher cognitive processes with an emphasis on intelligence, rationality, mindfulness, and the Psychology of wisdom. His abiding passion is to address the meaning crisis that besets western culture.
