Time is Real!


Not too long ago I reviewed a movie called The Examined Life, by director Astra Taylor, which featured ninety minutes of fascinating, exhilarating discussions with eight contemporary philosophers.

The film left me hungry for more, and recently The New Press answered my wish by releasing a book of full transcripts of Taylor’s interviews with Cornell West, Avital Ronell, Peter Singer, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Martha Nussbaum, Michael Hardt, Slavoj Zizek, and Judith Butler (in conversation with the director’s sister, Sunaura Taylor).
