Philosophy of Film, Without Theory

For philosophers and film scholars moving beyond the theoretical...


Philosophers of film are increasingly interested in investigating non-, anti- and a-theoretical methodologies in their work.

Methodologies in Philosophy Without Theory (in general) include, but are by no means limited to: fine-grained description and discernment; disentangling confusions; reactive and/or reflective critical inquiry, the exploration of conceptual connections; logical geography; conceptual synthesis; the provision of perspicuous presentations and surveyable overviews;  non-systematic engagement with individual or particular works, subjects, objects, ideas, events and/or situations…  and more.

Methodologies in Philosophy Without Theory about film may include any of the above as part of a commitment to focus on, and pay close attention to, individual films.
