Astra Taylor
Discussion about philosophy and film

Astra Taylor is the director of the philosophy films “Zizek!” and “The Examined Life”

Integrating clips from her own projects as well as other philosophy-driven productions, Taylor will discuss her inspirations and motivations, the power of—and problems with—trying to communicate abstract ideas through a visual medium, and some of the issues raised by presenting philosophy in embodied form.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Philosophy.
