Callings, Journeys, and Quests
Investigates how frequently people apply to their lives the traditional metaphors of calling or vocation, journey, and quest. To what do people feel called? Where are they going on life's journey? For what are they questing? The conclusion of this chapter is that in the fading use of these metaphors, what is fading as well is moral idealism and the sense that our undertakings have any larger significance.
