"For thousands of years, philosophers and theologians have talked about the meaning of life, yet we currently face a crisis of life’s apparent meaninglessness."

John Vervaeke is an award winning professor at the University of Toronto in the departments of psychology, cognitive science, and Buddhist psychology. He is the director of the Cognitive Science programme and he is the director of the Wisdom Studies Laboratory, a group designed to find meaning in a meaningless world.

He is also a popular Youtuber and author. With over 90,000 subscribers, his content covers everything from science and spirituality to his long standing After Socrates series. His books include Zombies in Western Culture and Awakening From The Meaning Crisis, which both seek to uncover the hidden causes of popular discontent.

"With enormous erudition and expertise, here was someone talking about the roots of our current crises." Emerge
