In this multidisciplinary approach Pasi Vliaho draws from science and philosophy to offer a compelling study of how the medium of film has shaped our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Vliaho examines key films from the early twentieth century, tracing the role that various arrangements of movement have played in the development of corporeality, perception, and modes of thought in cinematic modernity.

Here's what you say about us...

Pasi Vliaho is a lecturer in film and screen studies at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

"A commanding and consummate study of art, philosophy, the human sciences, physics, and biology in the matrix of cinema at the turn of the twentieth century. Blending contemporary theory with close readings of the foundational writings of modernity, Vliaho shows how the autonomy of the movie-machine shapes the ways we believe we think and live today. It will be a point of reference for every student of cinema, consciousness, and perception."

Tom Conley, Harvard University
