Abstract

In this essay I analyse the different modalities of thought that occur between philosophy and moving images, beginning with Gilles Deleuze's metaphilosophical distinction between "thinking" and "philosophizing". This is an essential distinction for the possible elaboration of a film philosophy, or at least one which claims that "film philosophizes," a thesis that is nowadays immerged in a certain misconstruction. In this sense, I suggest, as a conceivable resolution to this misunderstanding, a more proper Deleuzian designation of "thinking with concepts" and "thinking with images," in a fundamental reciprocal process between the philosophical and non-philosophical fields of the arts. Starting with an introduction to Deleuze's noology and a description of these ideas and their aesthetic value, I proceed with a closer analysis of moving images, metaphors, and film adaptation in order to question, within a post-continental-analytic approach, whether film philosophizes.
