The Matrix and Philosophy by William Irwin

Mostly an excellent book, though there are a few of the essays that feel like they're shoehorned in to the book for the sake of completeness, rather than because The Matrix actually touched on any of those topics. This is especially true of the femin...more

Gorgeous book explaining Taoism through the prism of the characters in Winnie the Pooh. Really, a so serous work. Definitely one to keep close and re-read, even to your children.

Slow to start, but the imagery at the end is a thing of wonder. Definitely a worthy companion to the film.
Norbert is on page 200 of 280 of The Matrix and Philosophy: Enjoyable book, particularly the initial essays. Some views I agree with, some I don't. Also, I should re-read Plato, Kant, Dostoyevsky, & Sartre. However, there's an ultrafeminist analysis that really bothered me. Terribly out of context. Easily the worst here. It focused entirely on how bad penetration is. Morpheus is described as Trinity's "Big Daddy", & Trinity for is called out for being recused by Neo once.

One of the most astounding books I've ever read. I actually read this a while back, but never reviewed it. If you've spoken to me about this book, though, my 5-star rating comes as no surprise.

This came before The Walking Dear, IIRC. Basically, take...more
