Philosophy and Film
Credit Hours:
Course Description:

Exploration of ways in which films can do philosophy and illustrate or more generally give expression to philosophical theories. Although some discussion of the nature of cinema as a form of art and of what makes an individual work of art important may take place, this is not a course on aesthetics or film theory. Most of the time in the classroom will be devoted to examining ways in which ideas are expressed in a corresponding manner in movies and philosophical texts.
