Huston Smith offers in this film a uniquely personal perspective on his own spiritual journey through life. He speaks with passion and humor about his upbringing, the inspiring and colorful individuals he has known, and the wisdom he has gained from the different religious and philosophical traditions he has encountered.
Smith is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Syracuse University, and is considered the country's preeminent public scholar of world religions. He is the author of Religions of Man (1958), which was revised as The World's Religions in 1991, and of Why Religion Matters (2001).
In this video, Smith holds forth on the state of world religion and religious leadership, and the vital importance of the transcendent message of religion for the post 9/11 world. His view is that life is rich with purpose, value and transcendental meaning; that that's the way things are.
