In Our Prime

A Philosophy of Life’s Best Years

At some point in our lives, we’ve decided many things: who we love, where we work and how we live. While some are content to have settled down, others worry about becoming mired in a routine and wonder if there’s more to life.

How can we discover new goals when we’ve achieved many things? How can we deal with our gradually shrinking horizons and the feeling that it’s too late for some things?

By applying philosophy to everyday contexts, Barbara Bleisch reflects on life experience, playfulness and carefreeness. She counters the cliché of the midlife crisis with her own philosophy about middle age that brings up existential questions about the decades we spend as adults – in the prime of our lives.
