Robert Pippin

More often than not, philosophy addresses human action by studying the relationship between mental states and bodily movements. This relationship is central to the methods used by realist cinema to link the narrative to a description of the character. This is particularly true of films by the brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. It is a key question and can challenge a number of preconceived ideas on the methods used for personal, social, or historical representations. The analysis particularly focuses on their film Le Fils (2002), and proposes using film as a philosophical tool. Talk by Robert Pippin, philosopher, University of Chicago.
