Obsah kurzu

Uses of Philosophies in Film 2 is the continuation of the course by the same name from the previous semester. In it we continue the exploration of how philosophical ideas have influenced and given inspiration to filmmakers. The course will start with an exploration of the possible connections between films and philosophy. We will also look into theories of authorship and how philosophical readings can influence the perception of the intellectual ideas within a film. We will continue with explorations of different philosophical disciplines and how authors have interpreted specific philosophies into the medium of film. The categories we will be exploring are: Ethics, Philosophy of Identity and Mind, Philosophy of Religion and Political Philosophy. We will end the course with looking into biographical films about famous philosophers and finally we will cover how filmmakers have used their artistic vision to convey their own philosophical ideas through film.
