This unit considers the relation between philosophy and film from both directions. On the one hand it investigates a range of traditional philosophical issues, such as the nature of free will and personal identity, through the medium of film, on the other hand it investigates distinctively philosophical issues raised by the medium of film itself, such as the question of film authorship, and the way in which film engages our emotions.
