Title: Cinematic Philosophy
Authors: Tal S. Shamir

Description: This book offers many important new features; it is not just another book on fi lm and philosophy based on case studies that identify or analyze philosophical references in movies. Although the analysis of movies is an important undertaking, I argue that while it can strengthen an already existing connection between fi lm and philosophy, it cannot prove that existence. How many philosophical references within movies would it take to prove that the cinematic platform has the potential to create philosophy? 5? 50? 500? 5000? And how do we measure the quality of each analysis? Would one poor analysis be suffi cient to disqualify cinema as a new platform for philosophy? In other words, how many and what kind of such analyses would it take to convince people that the cinematic platform itself possesses the potential to create philosophy?
