Aesthetics

A Philosophy of the Screenplay (Routledge Studies in by Ted Nannicelli

By Ted Nannicelli

Recently, students in various disciplines—including philosophy, movie and media stories, and literary studies—have develop into attracted to the aesthetics, definition, and ontology of the screenplay. To this finish, this quantity addresses the basic philosophical questions about the character of the screenplay: what's a screenplay? Is the screenplay art—more in particular, literature? what sort of something is a screenplay? Nannicelli argues that the screenplay is a type of artefact; as such, its limitations are made up our minds jointly by way of screenwriters, and its ontological nature is set jointly via either writers and readers of screenplays. Any believable philosophical account of the screenplay needs to be strictly limited by way of our collective artistic and appreciative practices, and needs to realize that these practices point out that a minimum of a few screenplays are artworks.

Qué cuenta como una vida: La pregunta por la libertad en Judith Butler (Teoría y crítica nº 21) (Spanish Edition)

«Para mí, desde un punto de vista filosófico, los angeles pregunta es: ¿qué significaría reconocer, aceptar, cierto tipo de permeabilidad, cierta manera en l. a. que somos afectados por otros a los que no conocemos o por los que no elegimos ser afectados? El mayor peligro para mí es el del sujeto autónomo y monolítico que intenta establecer límites e impermeabilidades absolutas, porque se niega a reconocer su carácter social y su interdependencia.
