Inspiring Talks

Dear All,

Since I think it should be part of everybody’s university education to think about how to lead a meaningful life, I have selected a few youtube clips and other links in which this question is discussed from various angles.

Please select one (or more) of the clips and watch it (them) – and then tell the rest of us what you think about it (them). Your comments can be very personal in nature (for example, how you feel after watching the clip; what you think about the topic raised in the clip) or more general.

You are also welcome to add links to other websites that discuss this or a similar topic.

Here the links:
