Sample text

The film allows us to perceive and to feel, to experience what is happening at a deeper and more persuasive level than any mere written account could manage” (Goodenough 2005, 12). Goodenough argues that the film manages to make the metaconcept of Dick’s novel plausible in a way that a mere argument on paper cannot (23–25). He claims, therefore, that a film might be able to do philosophy, or at least, a different way of doing philosophy (25). But he says this with caution, adding that the philosophy to be found in or via a certain film might not always be deliberate philosophy; for instance, Goodenough makes no claims that Ridley Scott was consciously engaged with this kind of philosophical work.

And if he could make such a mistake, then possibly, some contemporary thinkers may be making a similar mistake about our own up-and-coming technology. Philosophy was not born with writing and has no pure connection to it. Philosophy can, should, and must be created in other platforms. Misleading Semantics within the Discipline of Film and Philosophy There is a hidden dogma within the semantics of the discipline of film and philosophy. The obvious semantics of the words film (on one side) and philosophy (on the other) conceals an elusive element, an unconscious implication that there is a pure or natural platform for philosophy, which is not film.
