This title is offered as a special-order item. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 170915. Publisher's description: Amid all the controversy, criticism, and celebration of Terence Malick's award-winning film The Tree of Life, what do we really understand of it? The Way of Nature and the Way of Gracethoughtfully engages the philosophical riches of life, culture, time, and the sacred through Malick's film. This groundbreaking collection traverses the relationships among ontological, moral, scientific, and spiritual perspectives on the world, demonstrating how phenomenological work can be done in and through the cinematic medium, and attempting to bridge the gap between narrow "theoretical" works on film and their broader cultural and philosophical significance. Exploring Malick's film as a philosophical engagement, this readable and insightful collection presents an excellent resource for film specialists, philosophers of film, and film lovers alike.
