Philosophy & Pop Culture : Decoding The Matrix & Inception

Philosophers often come to the rescue of media analysts to deconstruct & interpret the artifacts of pop culture, particularly popular movies, and particularly science fiction films. Heres 2 videos in which philosophy adds some clarity to whats going on in the mind of the creative artist. Both are initially concerned with dreams & consciousness.

1. A riveting Authors&Google talk by Philosopher David Kyle Johnson on Christopher Nolan’s  INCEPTION I like the idea that movies & ads on tv are INCEPTION DEVICES. To be discussed.

2.  A multi contributor documentary on the philosophy of the MATRIX.
