Stories of Philosophies by Benoit Francois & Damien Cuypers

Today’s educational offering on purple television was created by Benoit Francois and Damien Cuypers. Stories of Philosophies is an animated series featuring famous philosophers, both early and contemporary, as main characters. The short is composed of two parts, each of which presents a philosopher reacting to the presence of an object in the manner of his well-known philosophical vision. Following the cartooning tradition and in order to stick to what’s essential, the black line drawings move accompanied by simple sound effects, in a white universe remini- scent of a virgin page – a space where ideas take shape. The intention is to create spiritual and delightful playlets with several levels of depth and understanding. We would like to both explain and provoke interest in the view- points of the world’s most famous philosophers.
