While comparative literature is a well-recognized field of study, the notion of comparative arts remains unfamiliar to many. In this book, Daniel Albright addresses the fundamental question of comparative arts: Are there many different arts, or is there one art which takes different forms?
Today's film scholars draw from a dizzying range of theoretical perspectives--they're just as likely to cite philosopher Gilles Deleuze as they are to quote classic film theorist André Bazin. To students first encountering them, these theoretical lenses for viewing film can seem exhilarating, but also overwhelming. Thinking in the Dark introduces readers to twenty-one key theorists whose work has made a great impact on film scholarship today, including Rudolf Arnheim, Sergei Eisenstein, Michel Foucault, Siegfried Kracauer, and Judith Butler.
