Return To Source - Philosophy And The Matrix

This fascinating documentary is about the film The Matrix and its relationship to philosophy and philosophical themes.

The discussion is broad and explains how masterfully and seamlessly the movie touches on everything from Socrates, Plato, Descartes, Berkeley, Kant, Nietzsche, Baudrillard, Borges, Nozick, LaPlace, Hume, Schopenhauer to religion, meaning, purpose, causality, free will, consciousness, love, intuition, etc.

Recommended Books/Readings related to the movie:

Jean Baudrillard – Simulacra and Simulation

Immanuel Kant – The Critique of Pure Reason

Arthur Schopenhauer – The World as Will and Representation
