Filmosophy returns for an eighth season of original and thought-provoking films and philosophical discussions. The films featured in this season offer an opportunity to reflect on our perceptual experience of the world and related epistemological, metaphysical and moral issues. We will explore the nature and value of sensory perception and consider to what extent (if at all) it can provide us with access to reality. In addition, our role as the object of others’ perceptions will also be addressed. Each film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion.
Screenings will be introduced and discussion sessions hosted by James Mooney, Short Courses lecturer at The University of Edinburgh.
