Meaning | Closer to Truth

Our journey is shaped by questions:

What is God? Does God exist? Does God make sense? Is God a person? What are alternative concepts of God? The diverse answers to these—and many more—questions give us insight into the nature of reality and our existence.

The topics below represent how we organize our journey to understand Meaning. We group our videos by specific questions that we ask our distinguished contributors in philosophy, philosophy of religion, theology, religion and sociology. Explore each topic below.
