Recently, students in quite a few disciplines—including philosophy, movie and media experiences, and literary studies—have develop into attracted to the aesthetics, definition, and ontology of the screenplay. To this finish, this quantity addresses the basic philosophical questions on the character of the screenplay: what's a screenplay? Is the screenplay art—more particularly, literature? what sort of a specific thing is a screenplay? Nannicelli argues that the screenplay is one of those artefact; as such, its limitations are decided jointly by means of screenwriters, and its ontological nature is set jointly by means of either writers and readers of screenplays. Any believable philosophical account of the screenplay needs to be strictly restricted by way of our collective artistic and appreciative practices, and needs to realize that these practices point out that at the very least a few screenplays are artworks.
