From Socrates to Cinema is the most comprehensive anthology of readings in philosophy, introducing students to the major areas in philosophy and the central questions posed by them-and it is a unique teaching resource for engaging students with these difficult questions. With over 130 readings, this anthology provides students with a vast selection of the classic and contemporary contributions to the disciplines in philosophy, systematically organizing readings within topical areas and critical questions. As a reader alone it is, by far, the most complete. In addition, this unique anthology includes features that provide a wealth of teaching options for the introductory course in philosophy. It links all the classic and contemporary readings to classic and popular films and literary works that explore, amplify, and confront the philosophical issues in the text. For every film and literary work, the text provides questions that connect them to themes in the readings, questions which will easily provoke discussion in the classroom and open the world of cinema to important philosophical considerations. Socrates to Cinema is a flexible resource intended to provide a robust array of original readings and pedagogical tools to bring the difficult questions of philosophy to life.

Jeffrey R. Di Leo is Professor of English and Philosophy at the University of Houston-Victoria. He is editor and publisher of the American Book Review. He is the author of Affiliations (2003) and On Anthologies (2004).
