Summary
Why should philosophers be interested in cinema? Or film studies in philosophy? In this lively and thought-provoking book, philosophers and film experts come together to write about a wide range of films: classic Hollywood comedies, war films, Eastern European art films, crime, science fiction, etc. What unites them is a belief that watching film can not only illuminate philosophy, provide examples, illustrate philosophical problems, and so on, but can in an important sense be doing philosophy as well. In turn thinking philosophically can bring to light new aspects of film. The book is crowned with an interview with Wittgensteinian philosopher Stanley Cavell, who discusses his interests in philosophy, how he came to be fascinated by the cinema, and how through his work and publications these two areas have been brought together
