520    "Addressing the question of what makes life meaningful, 
       Jerome Eckstein explores the ways in which we can heighten
       or diminish the quality of our life experience. He focuses
       on two contrasting attitudes toward life experiences: 
       "interested" (goal-oriented) and "intraested" (non-goal-
       oriented, i.e., something directed only at itself) and 
       shows that both attitudes are important and necessary in 
       order to make life meaningful. Philosophy, psychology, 
       religion, myth, poetry, and music are all brought to bear 
       on such specific life-meaning issues as work, play, love, 
       art, neurosis, and happiness, and in a touching epilogue, 
       Eckstein discusses his own life meanings in terms of 
       metaphysical loneliness, laughter, and dignity."--Jacket.
