abstract
Examined Life takes philosophy out of the darkened corners of academia and into the hustle and bustle of the everyday, a visual reminder that great ideas are born through profound engagement with the world around us. The "rock star" philosophers of our time take walks through places that hold special resonance for them and their ideas.
