The Matrix and Philosophy, Part 1 (Philosophy Matters)
25 May 2021 @ 18:30 - 20:30 AEST
In this two-part series, Usha Sista explores an iconic movie trilogy of our generation, The Matrix. The Matrix juxtaposes and synthesises storytelling, philosophy and cognitive science through the cinematic medium. She will examine some of the philosophical underpinnings of the trilogy.
In the first session, Usha will look at The Matrix through the lens of classical philosophers such as Descartes, Plato, Socrates, and others. Usha is looking forward to examining the trilogy and philosophy in conjunction with the participants.
