Philosophy In Film Blog
Philosophy seeks to address some of the most pressing questions in the fields of metaphysics, ethics, logic, mathematics, and aesthetics, among others. It is a subject of study that is both far-reaching and vitally important for our society. We turn to philosophy to contemplate our existence, purpose, and methods and practices for conducting our daily lives. Philosophy is also particularly applicable to film, as film can operate as a reflection or reproduction of humanity, or a visual story crafted with the intention of addressing philosophical questions. Philosophical theory and film theory are also intrinsically linked, as they both assess their respective subjects at the most fundamental levels. Philosophy in Film was created to merge these two subjects, and apply philosophical theories and methodology to the study and interpretation of individual films, directors, genres, film viewership, and the history of film production.
