    Film and philosophy have much in common, and books have been written on film and philosophy. But can films be, or do, philosophy? Can they think ? Film as Philosophy is the first book to explore this fascinating question historically, thematically, and methodically.

    Bringing together leading scholars from universities across the globe, Film as Philosophy presents major new research that leads film studies and philosophy into a productive dialogue. It provides a uniquely sweeping, historical overview of the confluence of film and philosophy for more than a century, considering films from Jean Renoir, Lars von Trier, Jorgen Leth, David Lynch, Michael Haneke, and others; the written works of filmmakers who also theorized on the medium, including Sergei Eisenstein and Jean Epstein; and others who have written on cinema, including Hugo Munsterberg, Bela Balazs, Andre Bazin, Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, Stanley Cavell, Alain Badiou, Jacques Ranciere, and many more.

    Representing a major step toward establishing a media philosophy that puts the status, role, and function of film into a new perspective, Film as Philosophy removes representational techniques from the center of inquiry, replacing these with the medium s ability to think. Hence it accords film with agency, and the dialogue between it and philosophy (and even neuroscience) is negotiated anew.
