By Ted Nannicelli

Recently, students in numerous disciplines—including philosophy, movie and media reviews, and literary studies—have develop into drawn to the aesthetics, definition, and ontology of the screenplay. To this finish, this quantity addresses the elemental philosophical questions about 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 via screenwriters, and its ontological nature is set jointly by means of either writers and readers of screenplays. Any believable philosophical account of the screenplay has to be strictly restricted by means of our collective inventive and appreciative practices, and needs to realize that these practices point out that no less than a few screenplays are artworks.
