This unit consists of three modules. The first explores a number of issues in the philosophy of film, such as the nature of film and its status as an artform, the distinct kinds of experiences film provides us with, and whether film can ‘do’ philosophy and in what sense. The second module focuses on some modern philosophical approaches to art and aesthetic experience and addresses issues such as the nature of beauty and the sublime, the transformative power of art, and the relation between art and truth. The third and final module explores the relation between art and politics in the work of several contemporary philosophers.
