David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times, investigates in his book, The Road to Character, the shift in our culture that has inflated people’s perception of their self-worth. He argues that people cannot be happy and have a meaningful life as long as they submit to the ideas of our modern culture and focus only on their own sense of importance and external success. In Brooks’s opinion, one has to seek inner light and pursue a greater cause in order to experience a fulfilling life.
