French philosophy has played an outstanding role in the development of a philosophy of film. Henri Bergson was the first philosopher who adopted film as a conceptual model for philosophical thought. Cinema helped him to imagine the distinction between spatialized time and duration, an idea that would remain essential for his entire philosophy. Though Bergson’s ideas bear no relation with the more contemporary language-based models of reason (and his interpreter Gilles Deleuze never used them in that way), Bergson’s thought fused with the remaining field of French philosophy of cinema in an often paradoxical fashion. Though French philosophy of film is composed of diverse elements, French or even continental philosophy of film can appear as amazingly coherent. Deleuze’s Bergsonian concept of the “time-image,” for example, is very much compatible with ideas elaborated by the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky who derived his insights not from Bergson, but from a critical evaluation of Russian formalist film theory.
“In 2007, we started a blue ribbon panel of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements and attempted to convene the leadership of emergency medicine and radiology to confront the problem of increased radiation. But there was not much common ground. We’ve developed more extensive guidelines, and are still developing them, for the best way to image. But since they’re being developed by radiologists, it appears that most of what we offer is considered not appropriate by emergency room physicians. The consensus is not working.”
