Is the question ‘What is the meaning of life?’ a genuine question or does it simply look like one? Some thinkers would argue that because meaning is a matter of language, not objects, then this isn't a proper question. ‘Questions and answers’ poses more questions than answers in an attempt to work out whether it is worth asking whether there is meaning to life. Why are we questioning the meaning of life more now than in the past? Perhaps it is partly because the problem with modern life is that there is too much meaning as well as too little.
