On Method

(p.155) Conclusion
Love in Motion

Reidar Due

Columbia University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the methodology of the book. The method of this aesthetic enquiry into the history of film form is grounded in ethical, ontological, and semiotic considerations. The analysis of individual directors and films has taken an interpretative form. Apart from its discussion of the ontology and ethics of love, this study proposes an aesthetic theory of film and a semiotic method of analysis. The method of this study is a conceptual framework that singles out a certain number of expressive and signifying elements in film, and discusses how these elements are brought together, and how they become part of an aesthetic synthesis. The book closes with a series of aphorisms or paradoxes that express what love is.

Keywords:   methodology, history of film, ontology of love, ethics of love, aesthetic theory, semiotic method
