By P. Quadrio on October 6, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quite basic and a little mechanical in places, also works with a rather dry and uninspiring conception of ethics... here are the normative theories, and how they apply to film, here are some practical ethical dilemmas and how they found in films. There is room for a richer approach. A bit too mechanical to sustain me.

Format: Paperback
I have been using this book for a Media Ethics course last semester. Shaw effortlessly combines an in depth analysis of the films considered with an exhaustive explanation of ethical theories. More than just using film as a “stretched” thought experiment, the book is an example of how film can actually do philosophy. An inspirational book for both students and scholars. Highly recommended.
