Description

Some of the world's best-loved films can be used as springboards for examining enduring philosophical questions. Philosophy Through Film provides guidance on how watch films with an eye for their philosophical content, helping students become familiar with key topics in all of the major areas in Western philosophy, and helping them to master the techniques of philosophical argumentation. The perfect size and scope for a first course in philosophy, Philosophy Through Film assumes no prior knowledge of philosophy. It is excellent teaching resource and learning tool, introducing students to key topics and figures in philosophy through thematic chapters, each of which is linked to one or more "focus films" that illustrate a philosophical problem or topic. Revised and expanded, the Second Edition features a new chapter on political philosophy, an introductory section explaining how to watch films philosophically, an appendix with primary readings, and the addition of five new focus films. Films examined in depth include: The Matrix Vanilla Sky Hilary and Jackie Memento I, Robot Minority Report Crimes and Misdemeanors Antz Equilibrium The Seventh Seal The Rapture Leaving Las Vegas Read More Show Less
