    Description
    A novel approach - Philosophy explained through the genre of sci-fi movies.

    There is a widespread reawakening of interest in philosophy, however, many people are put off by a belief that it is difficult to understand. This entertaining but educational book shatters that myth by showing, for example, that if you understand Keanu Reeves smash, 'The Matrix', you can understand Descartes.

    In 'The Matrix', the world human beings seem to inhabit is not real, but a computer- generated illusion. This idea is essentially Descartes: what can we know? How do we know that everything is not really a dream? Or how do we know we're not being constantly deceived by an evil genius?

    This is just the beginning and amongst other things you'll learn about:
    - Materialism and dualism from the 'Terminator' films
    - Egoism from 'The Invisible Man'

    Read this book and become be a veritable Jedi master of philosophy!
