I will argue toward the end of the book that only 14 introduction by recognizing this contingency in Godard’s cinematic and historiographic claims—the way they take the form of aesthetic judgments—can we understand the logic behind his historical (and fi lm-historical) work. Godard, however, does not simply incorporate the terms and conditions of aesthetics. ” One of these has to do with the state of mind that emerges in response to a work of art.

In the 1910s, the period of “narrative integration,” a number of fi lmmakers and critics sought to raise the standard of the cinema, to improve not only the fi lms being made but also the character of the audiences watching them. They sought, in short, to give fi lm the status of the other arts. Two basic strategies for this effort emerged. The first was articulated by D. W. Griffith in the wake of the controversy over The Birth of a Nation (1915).

One of these consequences involved the creation of the first institutional fi lm collections.
