Description

In this course, students will watch a selection of movies and analyze them in light of the various philosophical ideas that they explore. Primary attention will be devoted to identifying, considering and evaluating these philosophical ideas, the ways they are artistically presented in film and their connections to both traditional philosophical problems and each student's personal world and life view. One overriding theme of the course will be a focus on the philosophy of human nature and the so-called "fragile human condition."
