Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the first edition:

'No longer do students of philosophy have to fear dry texts filled with unreadable sentences from the masters of thought. Philosophy Goes to the Movies introduces philosophy through film... Given the importance of the visual and powerful new movies, we can only look forward to more books like Falzon's.' – Times Higher Education Suppliment

'An immensely enjoyable read.  It is engagingly written by someone with an obvious enthusiasm for both film and philosophy and who clearly has a talent for making philosophy accessible.' – Journal of Applied Philosophy

'Urbane, engagingly written ... admirably suited for someone taking a basic philosophy course using film.' – Matthew Kieran, Philosophical Books

About the Author

Chris Falzon is a lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Newcastle, Australia.  He has researched and published in the areas of continental philosophy and philosophy and film.  He is the author of Foucault and Social Dialogue (1998) and Philosophy Goes to the Movies (first edition 2002).
