Drawing on art-house movies like Cinema Paradiso and Hollywood blockbusters such as The Matrix, Christopher Falzon introduces and discusses central areas of philosophical concern, including:

- the theory of knowledge
- the self and personal identity
- Ethics
- social and political philosophy
- science and technology
- critical thinking

Falzon draws from the ideas of a diverse selection of thinkers, from Plato and Descartes to Marcuse and Foucault.

Ideal for the beginner, this book guides the student through philosophy using lively and illuminating cinematic examples including Total Recall, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Antz and Wings of Desire. It will also appeal to anyone interested in the philosophical dimensions of cinema.
