Description - The Philosophy of Film by Thomas E. Wartenberg

The Philosophy of Film draws readings from philosophy, film studies, and film criticism. Organized around a series of philosophical questions about film, it offers an accessible and engaging overview of the discipline. Readings from contrasting angles and points of view discuss the value of film theory, the nature of film narration, the debate on whether films can be socially critical, and the question of what we can learn from film. Offering clear and helpful section introductions and thought-provoking reading questions, this book is the ideal primary textbook for undergraduate courses on the philosophy of film or philosophically oriented courses in film theory.
