Quests of the Human Spirit: The Quest for Freedom
Feb. 11, 1962
Feb. 11, 1962. Running time: 47:17. Thurman presents freedom, the capacity to determine the future by action, as the fundamental element of humanity. Wrapped up in this is the ability to fail. Thurman posits mortality, the threat of absolute failure (i.e. death), as the guarantor of our experience of life. Freedom and the sense of alternative is completely necessary for our humanity.
