Una introducción a la filosofía a través del análisis de películas
Author: Julio Cabrera
Publisher: Editorial GEDISA
Julio Cabrera aúna en este libro sus dos grandes pasiones: el cine y la filosofía. En cada capítulo de este libro Cabrera analiza una o más películas elegidas cuidadosamente para reflexionar sobre una cuestión filosófica central. Aristóteles y los ladrones de bicicletas; Bacon y Steven Spielberg; Descartes y los fotógrafos indiscretos, Schopenhauer, Buñuel y Frank Capra; Nietzsche, Clint Eastwood y los asesinos por naturaleza; o Wittgenstein y el cine mudo son algunos de los ejercicios filocinematrográficos propuestos. Los comentarios de películas que el lector encontrará destacan aquellos puntos del filme que deben contribuir a la instauración de la experiencia vivida de un problema filosófico. Esta experiencia en sí es insustituible y nadie podrá tenerla por uno. Tan sólo señalo los lugares en donde el filme duele, en donde puede aprenderse alguna cosa padeciéndolo. Estamos ante el encuentro no programado y mutuamente esclarecedor entre una actividad milenaria del ser humano y uno de los más fascinantes lenguajes emergentes de los últimos tiempos: 100 años de imágenes tratando de representar 2.500 años de reflexión
National bestselling author Diane Whiteside delivers the third and final novel in her acclaimed Texas Vampires trilogy. Texas Ranger Stephanie “Steve” Reynolds knows all about vampires, since she has a demon lover of her own. For the past several years, Ethan Templeton has been helping her on cases when he wasn’t sharing her bed. But Steve, craving mortal motherhood, refused to get serious about the handsome vampire. Especially after she saw him kill a man she’d just arrested… Ethan loves Steve, but he thinks nothing can come of their passion. Even if he could convince her to share his immortal life, his vampire patron, Don Rafael Perez, would execute him for transforming her. But when the killer menaces Steve, Ethan realizes he has no choice except to risk everything. Will Steve agree to join a man she’s called murderer—or will she refuse her one chance at eternal life, lust, and love? From the Trade Paperback edition.
In the 1950s, television pushed filmmakers toward such processes as CinemaScope and the increasing use of color. Serials and B Westerns, two staples since the silent era, were no longer money-makers and vanished, while the new breed of producers began to challenge the censorship code, bringing an ever-increasing amount of more explicit movies to theaters. From Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick (Paramount, 1952) to Zombies of Mora Tau (Columbia, 1957), this comprehensive work provides full filmographic data on 3,078 American films of the 1950s. Each entry includes full cast and credits, songs, running time, alternate titles and availability on video. The entries conclude with a brief plot description. An appendix lists the award winning films from the decade.
