The Brain and the Meaning of Life Thagard, P.

It is a great introduction to the findings in the brain sciences that point towards the physicalist theory of mind.  Dr. Thagard gives a really good and comprehensive overview of the arguments for and against it, and complements them with science.  He also provides a foundation for finding meaning in one’s life based on what the brain seems to be programmed to value in life.
