The Professors Profess

Although the first six letters of “professor” makes it clear, the central duty of a professor is often misunderstood or forgotten. Professors are those with a distinctive point of view which, as experts in the field, are qualified to advocate for, argue, and teach. In other words, a professor is one who professes. In this blog, we openly express our own positions on issues in ethics, religious studies, and philosophy—our areas of expertise.

Do you search for deeper meaning in life? Do you find yourself pondering the bigger questions and wanting to explore the depths of your existence? If so, you're not alone. Many of us crave a sense of purpose and understanding in our lives. We yearn for something greater than ourselves, something that gives us a sense of fulfillment and direction.

But where do we begin? How do we even start to explore these big ideas and make sense of our existence? Well, the journey towards meaning-making starts with self-reflection and introspection. It's about taking the time to understand ourselves and our values, and how they shape our perspective on life.

Another way to dive into the depths of meaning-making is through exploring different philosophies and ideologies. There are countless schools of thought that offer unique perspectives on the purpose of life and the human experience. From ancient philosophies like Stoicism and Buddhism to modern movements like existentialism and positive psychology, each one offers valuable insights and perspectives on the meaning of life.

But it's not just about studying theories and ideas. It's also about putting them into practice and living a life aligned with our values and beliefs. It's about finding ways to incorporate these philosophies into our daily lives, whether it's through mindfulness practices, ethical decision-making, or simply finding joy and purpose in small moments.

Another important aspect of meaning-making is connecting with others. Humans are social creatures, and we find meaning and purpose in our relationships with others. By engaging in meaningful conversations and sharing our thoughts and experiences, we can gain new insights and perspectives on life. It's through these connections that we can also find a sense of belonging and community, which are essential for our overall well-being.

Ultimately, the journey towards meaning-making is a personal one. It's about finding what resonates with us and creating our own unique understanding of the world. It may not be a linear or easy process, but the rewards are immeasurable. When we have a deeper understanding of our purpose and place in the world, we can lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

So let's continue exploring big ideas and make sense of our existence. Let's challenge ourselves to think beyond the surface and dive into the depths of our being. Who knows, we may just uncover something truly remarkable and life-changing.

The short video below will start your thinking in exploring big ideas to further meaning-making.
