Special Topic: Philosophy in Film
Welcome to Philosophy 1: Philosophy in Film
This course will explore key philosophical themes
as they run through narratives, dialogues, and aesthetic features of selected films. One of the themes considered will be that of freewill
and determinism, which will provoke the consideration of whether or not we are truly free to design our own
lives and plans and create our own destinies. Other topics include questions surrounding the meaning of life, especially in light of existentialist writings by philosophers such as Sartre and Camus.
