If there is objective values, has the objective view solved the question of life´s meaning? (English)
Abstract [en]

In this essay, I intend to presuppose the existence of objective value and investigate the problems that the objective view faces further ahead, in its effort to answer the question of life’s meaning. Objectivism claims that in order for a life to be meaningful, one must engage in some way with values that are objective, values that exists independent of the subject. The aim here is to show that even with the existence of objective values the objective view hasn’t yet finally answered the question. In order for the objectivistic answer to be relevant for us we need to know what it is that has objective value and thereto, that this is a meaning-giving value. In addition, we either need to find internal reasons to engage in it, otherwise objectivism need to, besides assuming the existence of objective value, also assume the existence of external reasons.
