directed by Clint Eastwood (2010) – Authentic philosophy is a method for the progressive increase of our level of awareness (and of preparation) about death. The very goal of the entire process is the very goal of our philosophy, i.e. the very goal of life. In a few words it is to be able to approach the passing with SERENITY. After all we can only compensate our limitations with the full ACCEPTANCE about the inscrutability of what lies next. It is really strange that we learn thousands of things in life, but we do not learn how to die.
directed by Blake Edwards (1968) – In spite of clumsiness and other behavioural deficiencies, CANDIDNESS and a gentle soul might be valuable assets. In fact many say that two are the ways to cope with our life: extreme wickedness or extreme candour. Indeed the latter might reveal unexpected ways to cheerfulness, gaiety and pure joy. In reality philosophy promotes full awareness. So candour is good but naivety is less good. At the same time evil and iniquity are completely rejected.
directed by Martin Scorsese (2011) – A big reference for a philosophical lifestyle is “childhood” with its pure enthusiasms, sheer curiosity and instinctive openness. Not by chance WISDOM demands to preserve something of “childhood” deep inside ourselves. When we are kids the intellect is not yet prevailing. It means that we are still relatively in company of dreams, feelings and nice fantasies.
