KSC Seminar/Webinar Series: Elia Kazan and the Hollywood Blacklist: Some Philosophical Reflection
Presented by Dr. Sander Lee, Communication and Philosophy Department: In April 1952, Elia Kazan appeared before the House Un-American Activities Committee and named names. I will examine Kazan’s justifications for his acts, acts that contributed to the destruction of the careers of many of his talented colleagues and friends. I wish to discover whether his arguments are philosophically plausible and how the themes in his film “On the Waterfront” (1954) contribute to the debate over these issues.
