PHIL 208 Philosophical Themes in Film

3 Credits

This course uses film to explore some fundamental philosophic themes and questions. Film is a particularly powerful vehicle for philosophic thought because it is able to represent philosophic ideas in striking imagery and engaging narratives. In this course, students ask questions and explore themes related to metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, social and political philosophy, and epistemology. In addition to introducing students to fundamental questions related to these areas of philosophy, this course aims to enhance the student’s ability to think critically and reflectively. Students will also reflect on the compatibility of faith and reason with specific reference to the Catholic Franciscan intellectual and spiritual tradition. 

Prerequisite(s): PHIL 102  and THEO 104  and a minimum of 55 earned credits.
