Hermeneutics of the Film World : A Ric urian Method for Film Interpretation, Hardback Book

Hermeneutics of the Film World : A Ric urian Method for Film Interpretation Hardback


This book identifies a new methodological strategy for the interpretation of film philosophizing.

Many recent works in film philosophy, adopting the approach identified with the term film as philosophy, have considered film as capable of doing philosophy. Focused on the basic relationship between film and filmgoer, the proposed method is founded on the concept of the film world.

Combining Merleau-Ponty's and Ric ur's philosophies, and reconsidering Goodman's theory of worldmaking, the film world becomes the hermeneutic horizon from which film philosophical thought can emerge.

The book shows how Ric urian methodology has the potential to provide a valuable resource for film studies by inviting scholars to consider film interpretation in terms of film world hermeneutics.
