A Philosophy of the Screenplay (Routledge Studies in by Ted Nannicelli

By Ted Nannicelli

Recently, students in numerous disciplines—including philosophy, movie and media stories, and literary studies—have turn into drawn to the aesthetics, definition, and ontology of the screenplay. To this finish, this quantity addresses the elemental philosophical questions on the character of the screenplay: what's a screenplay? Is the screenplay art—more particularly, literature? what sort of a specific thing is a screenplay? Nannicelli argues that the screenplay is a type of artefact; as such, its limitations are made up our minds jointly by way of screenwriters, and its ontological nature is set jointly through either writers and readers of screenplays. Any believable philosophical account of the screenplay needs to be strictly restricted via our collective inventive and appreciative practices, and needs to realize that these practices point out that not less than a few screenplays are artworks.
