The postscript explores what kind of communicative model the humanistic study of film is, using as its principal example the undergraduate film studies seminar. Drawing upon the work of Martha C. Nussbaum and others, it explores the partial overlap between humanistic education and democracy. It argues for the virtues (including the democratic virtues) of non-dialogic forms of communication, and as part of this argument suggests that what Habermas describes as ‘the pressure of the “Don’t talk back!”’ of film and other ‘mass’ media may in certain respects be salutary. In the face of ‘new’ media and their possibilities for instant interaction, it is argued, film, and the humanistic study of film, can help to cultivate what is perhaps the most important obligation of communication (which is also one of the most important features of democracy): listening.
