Materialism and Its Criticisms
Materialism is the philosophy that owning material possessions gives our lives most meaning.  To most people in the world today, it is their first, biggest, simplest and most urgent goal.  Possessions tempt the multitude into thinking that they are the main meaning of their lives.  But are they really?  They have many criticisms such as their inability to please a purchaser for long.  After discussing materialism, attendees will criticize it at this Dialogue.

This manuscript is a much shortened version of the 2016 book Making Meaning  (200 pages)
