Woody Allen, Please, No


On a small town college campus, a philosophy professor in existential crisis gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student.

That is the description of Woody Allen’s currently untitled 2015 movie. It is in post-production and stars Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix, Jamie Blackley, and Parker Posey. More information here and here.

Ugh. I’d rather see a “God is Not Dead” sequel than this.

Woody Allen’s film catalogue is a good argument for eleatic monism.Report

I was at a holiday dinner party for a department in another discipline the other week, and although I don’t quite remember the context, the department chair at one point wryly remarked, “In the olden days, faculty used to date graduate students.” I could only laugh inside, and immediately feel like many philosophers don’t know just how *far* behind the curve we are on this compared to other disciplines, given how common faculty-graduate students relationships still seem in philosophy and how many discussions on the philosophy blogosphere have defended the practice.Report

Nothing; the problem is that recent events have shown that rational adults are thin on the ground in academia.Report

Rational adults are thin on the ground in Woody Allen movies, too, so it may be a good fit. (I happen to love Woody Allen movies, in general, so that’s not a complaint)Report
