From the Back Cover:

Thinking Through Film: Doing Philosophy, Watching Movies examines a broad range of philosophical issues though film, as well as issues about the nature of film itself.  Using film as a means of philosophizing, it combines the experience of viewing films with the exploration of fundamental philosophical issues. It offers readers the opportunity to learn about philosophy and film together by bringing them together in an engaging way. It also raises philosophical questions about films and the experience of films.

Film is an extremely valuable way of exploring and discussing topics in philosophy. Readers are introduced to a broad range of philosophical issues though film, as well as to issues about the nature of film itself - a blend missing in most recent books on philosophy and film. Cox and Levine bring a critical eye to philosophical-film discussions throughout.

About the Author:

Damian Cox is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Bond University.  He is co-author of Integrity and the Fragile Self with Michael Levine and Marguerite La Caze in 2003. Cox has written widely on philosophical topics including ethics, value theory, metaphysics and epistemology.

Michael Levine is professor of Philosophy at the University of Western Australia, and has co-authored Politics Most Unusual: Violence, Sovereignty and Democracy in the ‘War on Terror' with Damian Cox and Saul Newman (2009). He is currently working on the topic of the role of regret and self-assessment in our moral lives.
