In this article, I offer some critical reflections on E. Lecaldano, Il senso della vita (Bologna, Il Mulino, 2016). I focus on the relationships between the meaning of life and morality. My main claim will be that only two options are logically consistent – either the meaning of life and morality are quite independent or morality determines and restraints which lives could have meaning. However, both of those options are implausible. Lecaldano pursues an intermediate position – to the effect that seriously immoral lives could not have meaning. But this view faces difficulties.
