Screens’r’us: Introducing Mauro Carbone’s Philosophy-Screens: from Cinema to Digital Revolution

Event Description:

Screens have become a primary referential optical apparatus for everyday life in ways that influence the experience not only of seeing but also of thinking and desiring. This is why we need to question such experiences in an effort to make a philosophy on today's terms - a philosophy-screens.

Please join us for the launch of Mauro Carbone’s landmark book Philosophy-Screens: From
Cinema to Digital Revolution (SUNY Press, 2019).
