Descartes

Philosophers like Plato and Descartes often describe our day to day life as something like livingin a world of illusions (perhaps illusions manufactured by others). Do you see this idea at work in ‘The Matrix’, or any other film you would like to talk about?

Take a look at this short video on the film ‘The Matrix’ and Descartes.

Describe some of the ways in which Descartes’ philosophy is illustrated by
‘The Matrix’. If you have not seen this film, or don’t want to write about it, then just choose another film and write about that. (You might choose Inception, for example, which has also been associated with the philosophy of Descartes).
