PHIL 23.02 Philosophy and the Cinematic Arts

Moving images introduce new questions and problems in philosophy of art, and they offer new perspectives on old ones. How does film differ from the other arts? Do moving images represent time, and if so, do they do it in a pictorial manner? In what critical, aesthetic, and representational respects does cinema differ from theater, painting, and the other mimetic arts? Did cinema introduce new possibilities for realism into artistic practice? How should we understand the tangled relationship between photography and cinema? How does the study of moving images relate to problems in other areas of philosophy, like the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of language?

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
