Workshop on Philosophy and Cinema
The Workshop of Philosophy and Cinema aims to specifically develop contemporary philosophical research focusing on cinema, its birth, its history, and related issues. Though it mainly employs philosophical methodologies, it also resorts to use elements and conceptual tools coming from other disciplines, such as anthropology, history of culture, and visual studies.
Particular attention will be given to the development of the following skills:
- Understanding the status of art and its political implications;
- Ability to compare peculiar aspects of past thought with contemporary themes and / or authors;
- Ability to formulate independent judgments on the genesis, nature and meaning of the issues addressed during the courses.
