The Really Hard Problem: Meaning in a Material World

The Really Hard Problem: Meaning in a Material World - Owen Flanagan Flanagan really got into the nitty gritty details of how philosophy and Buddhism approach living a good life. He didn't shy away from areas where the two positions differ. In many ways I felt like this book delivered on a deep dive into Buddhism better than his Boddhisattva's Brain. Though I had a great time going deep into detail on Buddhism, I felt that the overall thesis of the book, experiencing spirituality from a material point of view, never quite gelled.
