Review:

Although the educational value of film has long been recognized, it rarely receives the attention it deserves, and it is an outstanding feature of this collection that the link between the study of film and video and the promotion of critical thinking is explored in depth. These essays reveal how reflective practitioners can bring philosophical ideals and pedagogical practice into close harmony and the collection will be of great value to any teacher committed to the ideal of critical thinking. --William Hare (Professor of Education, Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada)

This book will fill a sorely needed gap in Singapore's education system. The contributors build upon strategies such as Lipman's highly successful Philosophy for Children programme as well as Socratic Dialogue and the more traditional elements of Critical Thinking and Informal Logic. But what makes these strategies really come alive is the careful and imaginative way in which they take their starting point from passages in films and music videos. The book will be invaluable for anyone who wants to promote out-of-the-box thinking as well as the habit of careful and reflective reasoning. --John Williams (Assistant Professor in Philosophy, Singapore Management University, Singapore)
