Bert and I are holed up in Arlington grappling with the final edits to the manuscript, so blog posting will be light this week. See some interesting comments from Jermaine and Standing Eagle on the Kobe Bryant post, though.
In the meantime, we can report a big success for the East Coast premiere of Tao Ruspoli’s film Being in the World last week. The film features Bert, me, and several other philosophers discussing the relation between mastery and meaning, and is interspersed with interviews of masters from the worlds of New Orleans cooking, Japanese carpentry, Flamenco and Jazz music, and various others. Underground copies of the DVD are starting to circulate, and a theater opening is tentatively scheduled for January. See it soon!
