Description: Philosophy of Motion Pictures offers a new approach, championing the concept of the moving image in a more freestyle manner. Motion pictures are defined in a way that not only embraces the media in which moving images exist, but also affirms the purposes they may legitimately serve.Topics in the book include film as art, medium specificity, defining motion pictures, representation, editing, narrative, emotion and evaluation. Frequently they reflect the legacy of traditional film theory for the contemporary philosophy of the moving image.Characterizations of key cinematic elements --the shot, the sequence, the erotetic narrative, and its modes of affective address - are not deduced from first principles; but rather from topic to topic in a piecemeal fashion. The result is a more pluralistic review of this emerging field of study than found in more conventional texts on film theory philosophy.
