Film and Philosophy (Rare Book)
Description
About the Book:

This marks the beginning of dream project to blend the visions of a young art form with an age old mode of enquiry, Film and Philosophy. Here bridges are thrown across to each other to reach out and re-connect with the more challenging spaces of signs and meanings. The essays collected in this volume are those presented at the International Seminar on film & Philosophy, organized by the Dept. of Philosophy University of Calicut in association with Indian council of philosophical Research, University Grants Commission, Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Govt. of Kerala State chalashitra Academi and Kerala philosophy Association, during 26th-30th of September 2000. as adoor Gopalkrishnan and many other rightly pointed out this inter-disciplinary seminar that brought together the two disciplines, philosophy and Film- the former a realm of abstract thought reserved for eccentric minds and the latter a product of multi-billion leisure industry according to conventional wisdom-is the first of its kind in the state or in the country. The essays presented here open up a stimulating area of inter-disciplinary research and attempt to raze the Berlin Walls that divide academic disciplines and cultural practices so as to promote intellectual traffic between apparently disparate fields of enquiry.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
