Galen A. Johnson – Book Review: ‘Philosophy-screens: From Cinema to the Digital Revolution by Mauro Carbone’ [Albany, SUNY Press, 2019]. (Review originally published online: 29 December 2020).

Opening: Mauro Carbone’s most recent book, Philosophy-Screens: From Cinema to the Digital Revolution (SUNY Press, 2019) advances the work and thought of his Flesh of Images: Merleau-Ponty Between Painting and Cinema (SUNY Press, 2015). In his own words, Philosophy-Screens is “the effort to make a philosophy-cinema at today’s scale – that is, a philosophy-screens” (79). And indeed, Philosophy-Screens is written across the multitude of screens in our present life as well as incorporating leading ideas from the history of ancient philosophy and contemporary film studies, replete with Carbone’s evident love of cinema and analyses of manifold movies.
