Film: A Case for Cognitivism by David Bordwell




This essay, A Case for Cognitivism, from 1989 is introduced with a shorter, later piece, Cognitive Film Theory.

If we want to know how films work upon us, then cognitive theory offers a range of concepts which correlate nicely with notions like norm, form, function, and psychological experience.
