Berliner Spaziergang

Rüdiger Safranski - Unterwegs mit dem Zeitreisenden

Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Schiller – Rüdiger Safranski hat über diese großen Geister geschrieben. Es wurden Bestseller. Gerade ist er 70 geworden. Wir waren mit ihm in seinem Berliner Kiez unterwegs.

Immer wenn ein neues Jahr beginnt, fragen wir uns, ob wir alles richtig gemacht haben im alten. Was wir besser machen können und ob wir unsere Zeit bisher richtig genutzt haben. Rüdiger Safranski hat auch noch an Neujahr Geburtstag. Er ist 70 geworden. Wie fühlt man sich an so einem Tag? Beruflich nimmt er sich gern der deutschen Geistesgrößen an und erklärt sie den Normalsterblichen so einfach, dass seine Bücher zu Bestsellern werden. Hat auch er sich grundsätzliche Fragen gestellt? Ja, hat er. Doch bevor wir zu seinen Gedanken zum Leben kommen und hören, dass „einfach, nur die Zeit“ das Thema seines neuen Buches sein wird: Herzlichen Glückwunsch, nachträglich!
