Cinema, Philosophy, Bergman by Paisley Livingston Cinema, Philosophy, Bergman, Paperback (May 2012)

Can cinema be a medium for philosophy? If so, how is the philosophizing done? Paisley Livingston explores the philosophical value of cinema. As a case-study for his intentionalist theory of authorship and interpretation he focuses on Ingmar Bergman's cinematic explorations of motivated irrationality, inauthenticity, and self-knowledge.

Literature and Rationality by Paisley Livingston Literature and Rationality, Paperback (June 2008)

This interdisciplinary study establishes connections between divergent approaches to rationality in philosophy, social science, and literary studies.

Creation of Art by Paisley Livingston Creation of Art, Paperback (July 2007)

A collection of essays on creativity by a distinguished roster of philosophers of art.

Art and Intention by Paisley Livingston Art and Intention, Paperback (March 2007)
