About this book

In this innovative book, Sarah Cooper revisits the history of film theory in order to bring to the fore the neglected concept of the soul and to trace its changing fortunes. The Soul of Film Theory charts the legacy of this multi-faceted, contested term, from the classical to the contemporary era.

About the authors

Sarah Cooper is Head of Film Studies and Reader in Film Theory and Aesthetics at King's College London, UK. She is author of Relating to Queer Theory (Peter Lang, 2001), Selfless Cinema? Ethics and French Documentary (Legenda, 2006, 2008) and Chris Marker (MUP, 2008).

Reviews

"This is an exceptional, brilliant, and very wide-reaching volume. It makes bold and beautiful claims about the soul in theory and in film. Through Sarah Cooper's reflective attention to cinema from its inception forwards, and her fine engagement with film philosophy, a different history emerges." - Emma Wilson, University of Cambridge, UK
