About the Author

Mark T. Conard, associate professor of philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City, is the editor and coeditor of many books, including The Philosophy of Film Noir and The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers.


The greatest filmmakers do not simply tell stories, they create a multifaceted experience that requests as well as demands further inquiry. Martin Scorsese has crafted some of the most important films of our time, and this entry in the "Philosophy of Popular Culture" edited by Conard (philosophy, Marymount Manhattan Coll.) series examines his films in a distinctive and refreshing departure from traditional criticism, as it presents an analytical yet highly accessible investigation of the director's underlying themes and philosophical insights. The 13 essays collected here were written by philosophy professors with extensive backgrounds in cultural or film analysis and cover all periods of Scorsese's work, from films as diverse as Taxi Driver, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Aviator, and Kundun. What emerges is both a sense of the ethical core of a filmmaker and the realization that Scorsese's insight into the human condition remains constant and penetrating, regardless of the subject matter through which he crafts his vision. A welcome addition to any film section, this book is recommended for academic and large public libraries.-Peter Thornell, Hingham P.L., MA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Be the reader a Scorsese enthusiast or a philosophy student, this collection serves as an excellent interdisciplinary resource. - Choice
