CFP: "Teaching Philosophy Through Film (and Vice-Versa)," FILM AND PHILOSOPHY 13 (2008).

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedagogical techniques for teaching philosophy through film;
  • What does it mean to approach a film philosophically?
  • Discussions of particular films that illustrate metaphysical, epistemological or ethical issues in ways that are pedagogically useful;
  • Are some films just inherently philosophical (and hence good learning tools for teaching philosophy)?
  • What is gained (and/or lost) from showing films in philosophy classes (are we watering them down by using films)?
  • What unique contributions to film appreciation and evaluation can philosophy make?

Submissions should be from 2,500 to 7,500 words, following the Chicago Manual of Style, using endnotes that contain the relevant bibliographic information (please no separate bibliography or reference list). Please send your article in WORD format to Managing Editor Daniel Shaw at

Deadline: June 30, 2008.
