A wonderful end-cap and collection of thoughts to the life of Will Durant (written shortly before his death and published posthumously). Some of the things at the end, in his final chapter, are a bit undoable/....bit not with the times and something really to do, but he was a conservative (especially in matters sexual and in relations and discussions on women). He does have wonderful ideas on education, politics, government, and of course anyone who knows him knows that his views on history, literature, etc, is all fantastic. Would have been a delight to get to hear him do speeches while he was still alive. ( )

A companion film to the book of the same title this film creates a platform for the Durants to share their personal philosophies and life stories on topics as diverse as God and religion, youth and old age, how they came to write their best selling books and insightful thoughts on life, love, and human existence.
