European Cinema and Continental Philosophy examines how contemporary cinema contributes to political and philosophical thinking about the future of Europe's core Enlightenment values. In light of the challenges of globalization, multi-cultural communities and post-nation state liberal democracy, the book interrogates the borders of ethics and politics and roots itself in debates about post-secular, post-Enlightenment philosophy.

Discussing key philosophers like: Alain Badiou, Jacques Rancière, Jean-Luc Nancy, Emmanuel Levinas and Slavoj Zizek, Elsaesser brings their politics and ethics to bear on the work of filmmakers such as Lars von Trier, Claire Denis, Michael Haneke, the Dardenne Brothers, and Christian Petzold. Elsaesser's way of considering "film as thought experiment" also breaks new ground in the debate on film (and) philosophy quite generally.
