Most philosophers and many writers, besides evidently the doctrinal body of religions, have addressed the questions of order as well as the issue of meaning in life.
The investigation of order is a vast study program that needs to be broken down into diferente areas. Therefore, authors or a bibliography will likewise be organised in diferente sections.
Providing such references is equivalent to offering guidance in this course study. It will help the researcher, the student, the reader to find concepts, paths and ideas that otherwise would be difficult to gather. This is, in a nutshell, the result of the work that I have been doing for more than two decades.
Therefore, we will offer only general references here.
Aristotle (Metaphysics, Poetics), Plato, Augustine (Confessions, On happy life, On Order, The City of God), Aquinas (Summa Theologica).
Hegel (Lectures on the Philosophy of World History)
Heidegger (Introduction to Metahysics)
Leo Strauss, Karl Jaspers, Toynbee
H. G. Wells (The Outline of History)
Carl Jung (The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious), Joseph Campbell (The Hero with a Thousand Faces)
Homer (The Iliad, Odyssey)
James Joyce (Ulysses)
James Michener (The Source)
Again, this is a very short selection of materials just to have a framework of reference.
