"The phrase “paradigmatic philosophy” is ambiguous.1 Some ways of doing philosophy are in fact considered typical or exemplary for, among other things, historical, cultural, institutional, or even sexist and imperialist reasons. Some ways of doing philosophy should be taken as paragons. While some reasons certainly exist for thinking that philosophy ought to be linguistic (preferably written as opposed to spoken, contra Socrates) and clear, I speculate that this view of the proper way to philosophize is also partly a product of the business of academia. Philosophy should not be thought of as being exclusively within the purview of either writing or clarity. I contend insteadthat films can philosophize, and can do so by virtue of their ambiguity".
