Can Philosophy say something of value on Film? Can Film bare philosophical values?In class, we will look into the inter-relations between philosophy and Film, and think of directors as philosophers and of philosophers as directors. In that context, we will explore the ways the notion of the Real is thought in Philosophy, as well as its manifestations in Film. To do that, we will read texts of Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Benjamin, Nietzsche and Baudrillard.
