Recommendation
What some may not recognize is that this title is a play on “A Certain Tendency of the French Cinema,” by Francois Truffaut – a critique of the pre-New Wave mode of cinema. Keen little critique even at the title – fantastic article and I would expect no less from the likes of Ekin Erkan, one of the most interesting emerging young scholars of philosophy, technology, science and aesthetics
