Examined Life

Available on Pluto TV, Prime Video, Tubi TV
Examined Life liberates philosophy from the halls of academia through entertaining and thought-provoking excursions with some of today’s most famous and influential thinkers. Included are Peter Singer on the ethics of consumption; Slavoj Žižek on the environment; Michael Hardt on the nature of revolution; Judith Butler and Sunaura Taylor question culture’s fixation on individualism. And Cornel West—called “a genius” and “an oracle” by President Obama—compares philosophy to jazz and blues, reminding us how intense and invigorating a life of the mind can be.
Director Astra Taylor
