Preface (2014): French (or Francophone) thought has arguably had a greater influence on the discipline of film studies than any other kind. For the film scholar David Bordwell this is not necessarily a good thing. He talks in a derogatory manner of SLAB theory, which is to say any film theory based on the ideas of Saussure, Lacan, Althusser or Barthes. Even this kind of condemnation, however, is proof of the extent to which French thought has come to dominate the field of film studies, and this list of names only grows longer if we think of some of the major figures of film studies itself: Bazin, Daney, Bellour, Metz, Chion; or philosophers who, unlike those cited by Bordwell, have turned their attention to the cinema in major works: Bergson, Deleuze, Nancy, Badiou and Ranci re to name but a few. This influence of French thought on the discipline of film studies has been maintained across almost all of the various approaches that the discipline of film studies has adopted over the years, whether phenomenological or auteur-based, structuralist or poststructuralist, psychoanalytic or semiotic, and this is still the case today with many of the more recent "turns" that have happened in film studies and the humanities more generally, such as the "affective turn" and the "neurocognitive turn"...
