"Even now, in an age not much given to mysticism, there are people who ask 'What is the meaning of life?' Not a few of them make the simple…assumption that there is something to be known here….. And most of those same people make the equally unguarded assumption that the whole issue of life's meaning presupposes some positive answer to the question whether it can be plainly and straightforwardly true that this or that thing or activity or pursuit is good, has value, or is worth something. Finally…they suppose that questions like that of life's meaning must be among the central questions of moral philosophy."

David Wiggins, Truth, Invention, and the Meaning of Life," in Needs, Values, Truth (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1998), p. 87
