Plotinus and Film Studies: A One-Day Symposium - 15/07/2016, Athens (Greece)

The symposium revolves around the publication of the forthcoming book Plotinus and the Moving Image: Neoplatonism and Film Studies (Brill 2017), edited by Thorsten Botz-Bornstein and Giannis Stamatellos, and contains essays by international scholars. The contributors to the book as well as other experts associated with the project will animate the symposium. The main topic is whether Neoplatonic philosophy can be used for film studies by considering concepts such as contemplation, image, grace, time, human freedom, and the self.
