ADPL 1498 Philosophy of Cinema (Spring: 4 )

Course Description

Just as some of the world's greatest philosophy is to be found in novels, some is to be found in cinema, both films of philosophical novels or plays or original screenplays. This course will be much more than "philosophical discussion of movies." It will raise and debate fundamental issues in the history of Western philosophy in and through selected films. We will also read the books or screenplays on which the films are based and compare the written texts with the film version.

Instructor(s): Peter J. Kreeft

Prerequisites: Philosophy core courses completed.
