Pilgrims

mountAINIn “The Second Mountain”, David Brooks talks about his quest for meaning outside the public sphere.  “This Life” by Martin Hägglund seeks meaning in the present moment.  In Brook’s scheme, the first mountain are the goals of getting ahead; the second mountain is the search for a deeper meaning (for those familiar with Brook’s columns, the landscape of the second mountain might appear strikingly familiar).   Meanwhile, Hagglund proposes a faith grounded in time, rather than striving for eternity, and to cherish this life as an end in itself.
