About the Philosophy in Film Series
The primary aim of the Xavier University Philosophy in Film Series is to bring together interested students and faculty to appreciate and discuss connections between philosophy and film.
All Xavier students are welcome to attend. Each event is hosted by a Philosophy Department faculty member, who selets a short text which students are encouraged to read in advance. After the film, the department host gives a very brief talk and leads a discussion of some philosophical questions raised by the film.
Drs. Wood and Brownlee are the current directors of the film series.
In fall 2013 two films were featured:
Seconds, hosted by Dr. Aaron Szymkowiak, and Das Experiment, hosted by Dr. James Wood. The accompanying readings for Das Experiment can be found here.
