Abstract:   (1885 Views)

The books Philosopher or Director and Film as Philosophy, in their own way, address the issues of film and philosophy and their relationship. From the outset, Philosopher or Director takes on an evaluative approach and tries to project this relationship as a false and constructed concept but Film as Philosophy, tries to approach this issue from different angles with an analytical approach and, at every step, also examines the arguments of dissenters and critics. The imaginary conversation presented here is between these two books and is based on the texts of each of them. The titles of the books also clearly reflect their respective approach to the subject and from the very beginning, the Philosopher or Director commits itself to the impossibility of a companionship between these two concepts, but Film as Philosophy, does not look at the agent or activist in philosophy and cinema, rather it contemplates on the concept of film and philosophy and the possibility of thinking on the silver screen.
