Abstract:

The companion to Astra Taylor's acclaimed documentary film, Examined Life features the full transcripts of Taylor's conversations with eight iconoclastic and influential philosophers, conducted while on the move through places that hold special resonance for them and their ideas. Peter Singer's thoughts on the ethics of consumption are amplified against the backdrop of Fifth Avenue's posh boutiques. Judith Butler and artist and disability activist Sunaura Taylor stroll through San Francisco's Mission District questioning our culture's fixation on individualism. And while driving through Manhattan, Cornel West-perhaps America's best-known public intellectual-compares philosophy to jazz and blues, reminding us how intense and invigorating the life of the mind can be. Book jacket.
