Drawing from the riches of his own multifaceted inquiries, Hayes takes us on a thought-provoking journey into the pivotal significance of meaning-making in postmodern life. With clarity, wisdom, and deep concern for the emerging challenges in counseling and education, he illuminates the concrete implications for moving forward in a world of multiple realities.
