The Rediscovery of Meaning

Emphasizing the importance of meaning and unity to address the problem of meaninglessness and fragmentation in society, this is a collection of lectures and essays about language, the imagination, and social and spiritual topics.

We live in a camera civilization. Our entertainment is camera entertainment. Our holidays are camera holidays. We make them so by paying more attention to the camera we brought with us than to the waterfall we are pointing it at. Our science is almost entirely a camera science. . . . and it is already becoming self-evident to camera man that only camera words have any meaning.
