Documentary feature film about the life and work of renowned philosopher Hans Blumenberg (1920-1996). As a professor, he taught as Universities in Gießen, Bochum and Münster and was a member of the Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur zu Mainz (Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz). In addition to that, he co-founded the research group "Poetik und Hermeneutik" in collaboration with other intellectuals. In his film, Christoph Rüter gives the word three of Blumenberg's former students, who today work in very different sectors: As a taxi driver, an ad writer and a philosopher.
