Description: This collection displays a range of approaches and contemporary developments in the expanding field of film-philosophy. The essays explore central issues surrounding the conjunction of film and philosophy, presenting a varied yet coherent reflection on the nature of this conjunction.

Review: 'New Takes in Film-Philosophy is a distinguished collection of essays on the philosophy of film, which offers an invaluable overview of the ongoing debates about whether films can do philosophy and if they are appropriate subjects for philosophical analysis. Illustrating a multiplicity of philosophical approaches to film, the essays explore the boundaries of film-philosophy and offer insightful readings of particular films.' - Daniel Shaw, Lock Haven University, USA 'The encounter between the cinema and philosophy has been crucial to the development of thinking about film and to thinking itself. This volume gathers some of the pivotal writers in the area and provides a diverse, accessible and sophisticated introduction to the major debates surrounding film-philosophy. The articles range from general theoretical discussion to close film analysis and together articulate a new solution to the problematic divide between analytic and continental philosophy. The chapters by Thomas Wartenberg, Robert Sinnerbrink and Andrew Klevan are required reading for anyone interested in cinema or philosophy.' - David Sorfa, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
