Being in the World (film)

Being in the World is a 2010 documentary film directed by Tao Ruspoli. The film is based on Martin Heidegger’s philosophy and is inspired by Hubert Dreyfus. It features a number of prominent philosophers. Philosophers such as Mark Wrathall, Sean Kelly, Taylor Carman, John Haugeland, Iain Thomson, Charles Taylor and Albert Borgmann are also featured in the film.

Synopsis: ‘Being in the World is a celebration of human beings and our ability, through the mastery of physical, intellectual and creative skills, to find meaning in the world around us. Some of our most renowned philosophers, from Harvard to Berkeley, take us on a gripping journey to meet modern day masters-people who not only have learned to respond in a sensitive way to the requirements of their craft, but have also gathered their communities in ways that our technological age threatens to make obsolete.’
