Product Description


“While theoretically inclined film scholars continue to recycle the theories of Lacan and Deleuze, analytical philosophers have quietly assumed the leading edge of film theory. This judicious collection of essays, framed by thoughtful commentaries, provides an ideal introduction to the field of analytic film theory for students of philosophy and film alike.” Richard Allen, New York University “The philosophy of film and motion pictures has flourished in the last forty years or so, and Carroll and Choi’s anthology offers a marvelous overview of the chief issues. This volume assembles many of the best contributions by contemporary philosophers, and will serve as an excellent textbook in relevant courses. I expect it will also be an important stimulus to further research.” George Wilson, University of Southern California
