Cognitive Film and Media Ethics

Wyatt Moss-Wellington

  • Asks what we ought to do as storytellers and as story audiences
  • Applies concepts from social science that are seldom used in cognitive theories of media: autobiographical memory, limerence, cognitive dissonance, the benign violations theory of humour, and the social psychology of bullying, as well as theories of rhetoric, in particular enthymemes
  • Establishes its own humanistic consequentialism in contradistinction to past virtue ethics as applied to film and screen media
