Arguing the World
First Run Features • 1h 49m
Directed by Joseph Dorman • Documentary • With Irving Howe, Daniel Bell, Nathan Glazer, Irving Kristol • 1997 • 109 minutes
Arguing the World is the story of four brilliant and engaging men caught up in the central struggles of our time. This enthralling film creates a vivid picture of intellectual life in the 20th century.
For more than half a century, Irving Howe, Daniel Bell, Nathan Glazer and Irving Kristol have all passionately believed that ideas can change the world-especially their ideas. And they have been fighting over those ideas ever since they entered New York's City College as young radicals in the 1930's. Arguing the World traces their youth in New York's immigrant neighborhoods, their idealistic college days, their controversial roles during the McCarthy era, their battle with the New Left in the 60's, and their vastly differing political views today.
