Kunst en de zin van het bestaan

Onno Zijlstra

Artez Press, 2022


As humans, we reflect on our precarious existence and its meaning. Art is inextricably linked to the question of the meaning of our lives. And in times of uncertainty like ours, the question of how art can help us think about the meaning of what we do becomes more urgent. In this book, philosopher Onno Zijlstra encourages an inspiring conversation about the question of meaning in connection with thinking about art. For this, Zijlstra highlights six thinkers who in modern times have penetratingly addressed the question of meaning and who have emphatically involved art in their reflections: Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Wittgenstein.
