Philosophy Through Film offers a stimulating new way to explore the basic questions of philosophy. Each chapter uses a popular film to examine one such topic - from free will and skepticism to personal identity and artificial intelligence - in a approachable yet philosophically rigorous manner. A wide range of films are discussed including more recent releases like Being John Malkovich , Total Recall and Boys Don't Cry , and classics like Rashomon and Crimes and Misdemeanors , all readily available through major video rental chains. This unique and engaging introduction provides an exciting new way to learn about philosophy and connects complicated philosophical questions to the familiar settings of popular culture.
