Those of you near Edinburgh on Wednesday 12th October get not only the chance to see Duncan Jones’ SOURCE CODE but also take part in a post screening discussion on the nature of mind and conciousness with Filmosophy who are now entering their seventh season of original and thought-provoking films and discussions.
Next weeks screening of SOURCE CODE is the first of the season and will feature a short introduction by James Mooney (Short Courses lecturer and course organiser at The University of Edinburgh) and will be proceeded by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion on Daniel Dennett’s (Author, Philospher and Cognitive Scientist) views in relation to the film. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required, everything’s going to be ok 😉
Filmosophy will be screening MOON on Tuesday 13th May, 17:50 at Edinburgh Filmhouse as part of the Filmosophy 2014 season. The screening will include an introduction and post screening discussion on philosophical issues raised in the film such as identity, memory and ethics. But what is Filmosophy?
“Filmosophy is where film meets philosophy. Some films, like philosophy itself, can challenge our preconceived views of ourselves and the world around us. They may provide more questions than answers; yet, in doing so, they will expand our ideas and allow us to view familiar things in an unfamiliar way. They are films that demand to be discussed.”
Tickets for the screening can be booked at Filmhouse.
More details on Filmosophy and the 2014 season of films can be found on the Filmosophy site.
