Current Controversies in Philosophy of Film, Hardback Book

Current Controversies in Philosophy of Film Hardback

Part of the Current Controversies in Philosophy series



This volume advances the contemporary debate on five central issues in the philosophy of film.

These issues concern the relation between the art and technology of film, the nature of film realism, how narrative fiction films narrate, how we engage emotionally with films, and whether films can philosophize.

Two new essays by leading figures in the field present different views on each issue.

The paired essays contain significant points of both agreement and disagreement; new theories and frameworks are proposed at the same time as authors review the current state of debate.

Given their combination of richness and clarity, the essays in this volume can effectively engage both students, undergraduate or graduate, and academic researchers.
