    “Existentialists and others who believe that the universe is ultimately meaningless but who still choose to act as if meaning was real are among the moral heroes of the world, but theists think there is more to life than the affirmation of meaningless ideals in the face of an uncaring void.”

    Professor,

    I’m not sure if you’ve read “A Free Man’s Worship” by Bertrand Russell, but if you haven’t, it just about perfectly epitomizes the ‘moral heroism’ that you capture above.
