Ten years after graduating with a philosophy degree, filmmaker Tao Ruspoli returned to visit his one-time professor, Herbert Dreyfus. That visit led to meetings with other philosophers whom Dreyfus had taught. Being in the World raises the question of whether we have forgotten what it means to be truly human in today's technological age. Ruspoli visits modern day masters to explore how they approach life and find meaning in the world through the mastery of physical, intellectual, and creative skills.

This is worth watching for Manuel Molina, the legendary poet and flamenco master.

too much jazz and flamenco but otherwise interesting review of 21st century philosophy
