Released in 1958, Vertigo is widely regarded as Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece and one of the greatest films of all time. This is the first book devoted to exploring the philosophical aspects ofVertigo. Following an introduction by the editor that places the film in context, each chapter reflects upon Hitchcock's filmfrom a philosophical perspective. Topics discussed include:

memory, loss, memorialisation, and creativity
mimetic or representational art and art as magic
the nature of romantic love
gender, sexual objectification, and identity
looking, "the gaze", and voyeurism
film and psychoanalysis
fantasy, illusion, and reality
the phenomenology of colour.

Including annotated further reading at the end of each chapter, this collection is essential reading for anyone interested in Vertigo, and an ideal resource for students of film and philosophy.

Katalin Makkai is Junior Professor of Philosophy at ECLA of Bard, Berlin (Germany). She is the author of "Kant on Recognizing Beauty," which appeared inEuropean Journal of Philosophy.
