|This enthralling film captures an era when the world depended on ideas as much as arms. With the Cold War raging and competing political philosophies vying to exert influence in every corner of the globe, four brilliant men--Irving Howe, Daniel Bell, Nathan Glazer and Irving Kristol-- tried to change the world with their ideas. |
From their youth in New York's immigrant neighborhoods and their idealistic college days to the great battles during the McCarthy era and the 1960s, Arguing the World is "a potent generational experience" (J. Hoberman, Village Voice), "among the rare works that brings the lives of the mind to life on screen" (Robert Sklar, The Forward).
