Merging Maurice Merleau-Pontys phenomenology of perception with Gilles Deleuzes image-philosophy, Vaughan applies a rich theoretical framework to a comparative analysis of Jean-Luc Godards films, which critique the audio-visual illusion of empirical observation (objectivity), and the cinema of Alain Resnais, in which the sound-image generates innovative portrayals of individual experience (subjectivity).

Both filmmakers radically upend conventional film practices and challenge philosophical traditions to alter our understanding of the self, the world, and the relationship between the two. Films discussed in detail include Godards Vivre sa vie (1962), Contempt (1963), and 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her (1967)- and Resnaiss Hiroshima, mon amour (1959), Last Year at Marienbad (1961), and The War Is Over (1966). Situating the formative works of these filmmakers within a broader philosophical context, Vaughan pioneers a phenomenological film semiotics linking two disparate methodologies to the mirrored achievements of two seemingly irreconcilable artists.
