Shadow Philosophy: Plato’s Cave and Cinema is an available and intriguing new contribution to film-philosophy, which indicates that to take movie heavily is usually to interact with the basic questions of philosophy. Nathan Andersen brings Stanley Kubrick’s movie A Clockwork Orange into philosophical dialog with Plato’s Republic, evaluating their contributions to subject matters comparable to the character of expertise and that means, the nature of justice, the distinction among visual appeal and fact, the significance of paintings, and the influence of images.

At the center of the e-book is a singular account of the analogy among Plato’s allegory of the cave and cinema, built together with a provocative interpretation of the main robust photo from A Clockwork Orange, during which the lead personality is strapped to a chair and compelled to monitor violent movies.

Key gains of the booklet comprise:

  • a finished bibliography of steered readings on Plato, on movie, on philosophy, and at the philosophy of film

  • a record of steered motion pictures that may be explored following the strategy during this ebook, together with short descriptions of every movie, and proposals relating to its philosophical implications

  • a precis of Plato’s Republic, ebook through e-book, highlighting either dramatic context and topic matter.

Offering a detailed interpreting of the arguable vintage movie A Clockwork Orange, and an introductory account of the crucial subject matters of the philosophical vintage The Republic, this ebook may be of curiosity to either students and scholars of philosophy and picture, in addition to to readers of Plato and lovers of Stanley Kubrick.
