Spring 2006 PHL 201 Turner Final – Response #2 Watching Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life was an experience for me. I did not expect much of an answer to the actual question of “What is the meaning of life?” Not a serious one anyway. Throughout the film it gives its philosophies about the meaning of life in forms of comedic skits, but it is in the end that they give a “real answer” to the question of “What’s it all about?” The view presented in Monty Python is somewhat supported by at least one of Baggini’s views in his book, which will be looked at later. Monty Python’s view on the meaning of life is a plausible one nonetheless, and to my surprise, makes good sense. The movie gives several ideas on what they think about the meaning of life, as well as tips and tricks. Like if you make a really big sail and attach it to an office building you will be able to roam the freeways and country sides in able to plunder and pillage other office buildings. Scratching the tips and tricks bit, the Python’s view on the meaning of life could be looked at in both an optimistic way and/or a pessimistic way. If you looked at the glass as half-full, then you probably take the Python’s view saying this: It’s a strange existence, use yourself to “find” and even experience the meaning of life first-hand. Religious figures, shrinks, the school systems, and scientists cannot tell you

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
