Return to the source. Philosophy & The Matrix – a documentary about the film The Matrix and its relationship to philosophy

Philosophy And The Matrix via Berto : “This is a documentary 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. Some big names are interviewed; among them John Searle, David Chalmers, Cornel West, Colin McGin and Daniel Dennett.”

This is one of the two feature-length documentaries on #8 (The Roots of The Matrix) of the 10-Disc Ultimate Set. It goes over many philosophical concepts that inspired, and are presented in, the trilogy. They spend the first half on the original film, and the rest of the time then goes over parts 2 and 3, with a couple of things on the Animatrix shorts. This consists of clips and interviews.
