Filmosophy is a book by Daniel Frampton on film philosophy.

From the publisher:

"Filmosophy" is a provocative new manifesto for a radically philosophical way of understanding cinema. The book coalesces twentieth-century ideas of film as thought (from Hugo Munsterberg to Gilles Deleuze) into a practical theory of 'film-thinking', arguing that film style conveys poetic ideas through a constant dramatic 'intent' about the characters, spaces and events of film. With discussions of contemporary filmmakers such as Bela Tarr and the Dardenne brothers, this timely intervention into the study of film and philosophy will stir argument and discussion among both filmgoers and filmmakers alike.

From the Inside Flap

‘You hold in your hands an extremely daring book. Filmosophy does not present a philosophy of film, nor does it explore how film contributes material for philosophical interpretation. Rather, in a lucid and clear style, Daniel Frampton argues that film is philosophy; it is itself, aesthetically, philosophical expression – a medium for thinking – and an accompaniment to thought. In conceptualising film as an "organic intelligence", Frampton draws from the lessons of both Gilles Deleuze and to propose one of the most original film philosophies of the last thirty years.’ --D. N. RODOWICK, HARVARD UNIVERSITY
