Part of the Kierkegaard Circle

John Caruana

Associate Professor
Department of Philosophy
Ryerson University

John Caruana is Associate Professor of Philosophy as well as the Graduate Program in Communication and Culture at Ryerson University. While his past publications, in various journals and book collections, have focused on continental philosophers, including Levinas and Kristeva, his most recent work has explored the intersections of film, philosophy, and religion. He has published on the cinema of Bruno Dumont, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Abbas Kiarostami, Eric Rohmer, and the Dardenne brothers. He is — along with Mark Cauchi — the co-editor of Postsecular Cinema: Between Malick and von Trier (SUNY Press, forthcoming).
